TITLE-chasing Ipswich Town Reserves went 13 points clear at the top of the Combination League after a come-from-behind 3-1 win at Southend.

James Lawson put the Shrimpers ahead a minute before the break at Roots Hall yesterday afternoon but Liam Trotter nodded in a Darren Currie cross to equalise and then hit a long-range scorcher to put the Blues ahead.

Trotter, who was recently on loan at Millwall, might have had a hat-trick but hit a post, as did Matt Richards.

Jordan Rhodes completed the scoring after pouncing onto a poor back pass and also had a goal disallowed for offside.

Manager Jim Magilton, along with assistant Bryan Klug and chief scout Steve McCall, were all on hand to watch the young side play well against the Shrimpers, with Currie upping the average age and showed he is looking for a first team return, with an effort that was tipped around a post.

The Blues are now unbeaten in 10 reserve matches after losing their opener at MK Dons and are 13 points ahead of second-placed Colchester United.
