Ipswich Town bounce back from Plymouth Argyle defeat with resounding away win at Wycombe Wanderers

More news, no ads


Ipswich Town went some way to banishing the disappointment of the weekend's defeat at Plymouth Argyle by turning on the style during last night's 4-1 victory at Wycombe Wanderers.

The Chairboys, who were looking to move themselves into the EFL League One automatic promotion places, headed into the fixture having won all of their home league fixtures this term.

And it appeared they were on course to keep that run going when David Wheeler fired them in front with 17 minutes on the clock.

However, the response from the visitors was emphatic – kick-started by Bersant Celina's effort from distance 10 minutes after the Tractor Boys had fallen behind.

Leading scorer Macauley Bonne netted his 11th goal of the campaign six minutes after the restart to hand Ipswich the lead for the first time, before further goals from Wes Burns and Celina made it a memorable evening for the impressive away following that had made the trip to support their side in Buckinghamshire.

"What a performance really, that's all I can say. It just goes to show we can come to top of the league pretty much and put on a performance like that," goalscorer Burns told the Ipswich website.

"I think the gaffer has said himself that we've always got goals in us and I think we showed that tonight.

"It's not easy to come to a ground like this, their home record speaks for itself. For us to come here, put on a show for the fans and take all three points is massive for us.

"The first 15/20 minutes we had to weather everything they threw at us. Obviously we concede, but Santi (Celina) gets us back in the game and from there we imposed our style on the game dominated from there."

The victory has moved Paul Cook's men up to ninth in the League One table, with a four-point gap to the play-offs.

On Saturday, Ipswich will switch their focus to Emirates FA Cup duty when they play host to lower-league Oldham Athletic at Portman Road (3pm).
