Ipswich Town Under 18s’ recent good form continued at Playford Road on Saturday (17th April 2021), with a 2-0 win over Coventry City.
Fresh from an FA Youth Cup win against Middlesbrough seven days prior and a League victory at Wigan Athletic in midweek, Adem Atay’s side made it three triumphs in a week upon their return to Suffolk soil. A goal in each half, from Ola Bello (7′) and Jesse Nwabueze (83′) gave Town the win. The Blues remain in second place, four points behind league leaders Charlton Athletic but with a game in hand. Millwall and Watford, in third and fourth place respectively, are both ten points behind Ipswich – whose next fixture is away to Birmingham City on Saturday 24th April (kick-off 12.30pm).
ITFC Under 18s line-up vs Coventry City (Sat 17/04, home): Bort, Knock (Valentine 54′), Steele, Stephenson, Agbaje, Bradshaw, F. Barbrook, Hoque (Manly 54′), Chirewa, Nwabueze, Bello (Osbourne 54′). Unused subs: Ridd, H. Barbrook
