Ipswich Town defeated Wolves 3-2 in the Carabao Cup third round Friday night, with summer addition Jack Taylor scoring the game-winning goal.
Last night, Ipswich Town put themselves to the test against Premier League opposition. And they won after coming from two goals down, with Omari Hutchinson and Freddie Ladapo scoring in the first half to tie the game at 2-2 at the half.
Taylor scored shortly before the hour mark to put the Tractor Boys ahead 3-2, and they held on to go to the next round of this season’s Carabao Cup.
Taylor, along with midfield partner Lee Evans, was singled out for appreciation by manager Kieran McKenna.
Speaking to the club, McKenna said of the pair:
“I thought Jack’s performance, as well as Lee’s (Evans), in the middle of the pitch was excellent. You could probably go through every player and say the same to be honest.”
Taylor has now scored twice in the cup this season, featuring five times in the Championship. Evans meanwhile has featured just once in the league but played the full 90 last night, after sitting the last three games on the bench.
Squad depth for Ipswich Town
Both Taylor and Evans – Evans especially – have played rotational roles in the Championship this season. But both came in against a Premier League side last night and ran the game.
It shows the levels of quality that Ipswich have running through their ranks this season and there is of course a lot of praise due for McKenna, who’s put together a very strong side.
The Tractor Boys currently sit in 2nd place of the Championship table having won seven of their opening eight games, and are next in action away at Huddersfield Town this weekend.
