Match Report v Ipswich Town

Long Melford 0 - 2 Ipswich Town

Omni Freight Suffolk Premier Cup - Wed 11 October - Att: 204

Other than a short period of the second half Melford proved equal to their youthful Academy opponents and during the first half created some of the better chances of the game. 

It was an entertaining game played in a good spirit with the end result perhaps a little harsh on the home team. 

After twelve minutes Melford almost went ahead when the speedy Callum Hemson broke through the Ipswich defence and his forceful shot looked goal bound until somehow Harry Wright in the Ipswich goal pushed the ball over the crossbar. 

The Villagers continued to impress and from a TJ Le Page free kick skipper Steve Adams headed just wide of the upright. 

In between Ipswich forced two corners which were cleared by the Melford defence. 

Again Melford attacked the Ipswich goal with striker George Day on his full debut firing in two good shots which keeper Wright was able to deal with. 

After thirty minutes Ipswich made their first full impact on the game, Kiwi International Monty Patterson started to get more into the game and he released Jack Lankester his shot from twenty yards brought a diving save from David Leader in the Melford goal, who was deputising for the absent Darren Moyes on work duties. 

Just before half time both Lankester and Patterson brought further saves from keeper Leader, with Ipswich on the offensive up to the half time whistle. 

After their impressive first half Melford again opened brightly at the start of the second period with TJ Le Page firing wide, and George Day putting in a couple of useful efforts. 

In the overall context of the game and from a Melford perspective they will reflect on a tangle in the Ipswich box after 54 minutes when it appeared that Will Wingfield was pulled to the ground but instead of the anticipated penalty, the referee awarded a free kick against Melford. 

Ironically at the other end and on the rebound of that decision Ipswich went ahead, and a rare lapse in concentration by Melford, who missed a cross into the box and DECLAN DANIELS fired home from three yards to give the visitors a 60th minute lead. 

Straight from the kick off Monty Patterson weaved his way into the Melford box and was chopped down by Scott Sloots, and the due penalty was awarded. And on 62 minutes the penalty converted by MONTY PATTERSON to give the visitors a comfortable lead. 

Although Melford introduced their substitutes the damage was done, and with Ipswich up a peg in confidence, their fitness and youthful ability was difficult to overcome.

In the closing minutes David Leader in the Melford goal who had an excellent game, had to make saves from man of the match Patterson and substitute Steven Cahill. CHENOBERET
