U18s Draw at Fulham
Sunday, 13th Feb 2011 21:24
Town’s U18s recovered from going two goals down to draw 2-2 at Fulham on Saturday morning. Josh Carson (pictured) and Jidé Maduako were on target for the Blues.
After conceding around the half-hour mark and going into the break one goal down, Town defender Rory McKeown then conceded a penalty on the hour which the Cottagers converted.
However, Northern Ireland U21 international midfielder Josh Carson pulled a goal back 10 minutes later as Town hit the hosts on the break, the 17-year-old hitting a superb shot from 30 yards that flew into the net.
And with 10 minutes remaining, centre-back Jidé Maduako equalised with a header from a corner to secure a point for Town’s youngsters.
Keeper Cody Cropper was withdrawn at the break, perhaps signalling that he could be involved in the reserves match against Colchester United on Wednesday afternoon.
Meanwhile, Town’s U16s secured a 3-2 victory, also at Fulham.
U18s: Cropper (O’Donnell 46), Bennett, Whight, Jones, Meekings, McKeown (Maduako 60), Winter, Scotcher, Tiofack (Lawrence 75), Carson and Burke. Unused: Simmons and Acott.

Mick McCarthy’s Magic Method by realprojection
In the modern football world, most match reports are adorned by a plethora of stats that may (or may not) tell us something extra about the relative performance of each team – eg BBC reports show shots, shots on target, possession and fouls.
We Couldn't Wish for an Easier Run of Games by BossMan
With the team currently out of form I reckon the upcoming set of fixtures up to the end of January couldn't look much better for us (based merely on the league table as of this morning).
Are Our Goalkeepers Both the Same? by BlueRaider
Many fans seem to think there is little to choose between our goalkeepers, I disagree.
Mick Not the Man for Town (Part Two) by BossMan
Last August I wrote a blog suggesting that Mick was the wrong man for the job, despite the fact that he had just signed a new three-year deal.
What Do We Expect of Our Club? by DurhamTownFan
A few weeks ago, I wrote a blog on the subject of Town’s playing style under Mick McCarthy. Having been humbled at Old Trafford, I wanted to see how everyone felt about what I perceived to be a rather attritional and outdated brand of football seen here and in pretty much every other Ipswich game since McCarthy arrived.
