Folami Nets Late Winner for U23s at Wednesday
Saturday, 2nd Sep 2017 14:25
Ben Folami netted a late winner as Town’s U23s beat Sheffield Wednesday 2-1 at Hillsborough this afternoon, on-loan Manchester City winger Bersant Celina having given the Blues the lead in the first half.
Celina, playing his second U23s game in five days as he looks to get minutes under his belt having been hampered by illness in the early weeks of the season, curled home a brilliant 20-yard freekick before Wednesday equalised through a Lucas Joao penalty in the second half.
But Australian striker Folami, one of the players to make his senior debut at Crystal Palace in the Carabao Cup and a scorer in Tuesday’s 3-2 U23s victory over Sheffield United, grabbed the winner in the final minute.
Midfielder Tom Adeyemi played 80 minutes in his second appearance for the U23s as he continues his comeback after illness and a calf injury, while Danny Rowe was also in the side.
The U23s, who are coached by Gerard Nash, have now won three of their first four games this season.
TWTD user Sheffield Tractor was at the game and has written a blog giving his thoughts on the game.
U23s: Wright, D Crowe, Webber, Adeyemi, Woolfenden, C Smith, Rowe, McLoughlin, Morris, Celina, Folami. Subs: Blanchfield, Ndaba, Dobra.

End of Season Grades by BlueBloke
Football might be one of life’s trivial pursuits in which it’s never quite possible to gain enough distance; I still wince, for instance, at the two Bobby Zamora goals that killed our promotion dream in the 2005 play-offs.
TS Eliot and the Football Waste Land by monty_radio
April is the cruellest month – or so TS Eliot once said back in 1922, the year of the publication of his poem, The Waste Land, when the FA Cup final was done-and-dusted by the end of April.
Away Day Report: Reading by BlueBloke
I wake up at 5.30am. I’d like to say it was in anticipation of watching the Town. Sadly, it owes rather a greater deal to an abhorrently early alarm on Tuesday morning and a very late night on Thursday. Still, now that I’m conscious I may as well start thinking about the day ahead.
On This Day - Saturday 28th April 1962 by clivebleedingthomas
As a 15-year-old I make my way to Portman Road full of anticipation and anxiety. Our rivals, Burnley, are playing at home to already relegated Chelsea. A home win must be on the cards. On the following Tuesday they will play their game in hand against Sheffield Wednesday. However, Town are top of Division One and facing Aston Villa.
An Open Application for the Ipswich Manager's Position by BaltachaFanClub
I am already sick of the fiasco involving our new leader, the interview with our owner and all that goes with it, so I thought I should make a light-hearted, open application for the job my (fictional) self.
