Charlton U23s claim all three points at Ipswich Town

Ipswich Town scored first, but two second-half goals ensured that Charlton U23s would claim all three points at the Ipswich training ground yesterday (Monday).

Ipswich started the stronger and Dillon Phillips was called upon within the first five minutes to make a fine save to keep the score level. However Ipswich took the lead just before the break with their centre forward turning home from close range after meeting a cross at the near post.

The home side almost doubled their lead on the hour mark, but the shot hit the outside of the post.

Anfernee Dijksteel nearly equalised soon after but the Ipswich goalkeeper saved the goal bound shot.

The U23s levelled in the next attack, with Nicky Ajose’s cross making its way to the back post where Josh Umerah was waiting to stab the ball into the back of the net.

The turnaround was completed with 15 minutes to play, when Taylor Maloney let fly from 30 yards beating the Ipswich keeper and sneaking into the corner.

Another great win for Jason Euell’s U23 side.
