Bishop Continues Comeback and Jackson Hits Hat-Trick as Strong Town XI Thrash QPR
Wednesday, 14th Nov 2018 17:38
Teddy Bishop played 60 minutes and Kayden Jackson netted a hat-trick as a strong Town XI beat QPR 5-1 in a behind closed doors friendly watched by new manager Paul Lambert at Playford Road this afternoon.
In addition to Bishop, who was taking part his second game as he returns from his latest hamstring injury having played 45 minutes for the U23s against Cardiff last week, Myles Kenlock was involved in his first match since suffering an ankle injury and was given the first half.
Jackson opened the scoring just before the 20-minute mark from a Bishop ball into the box following a Grant Ward corner.
The former Accrington striker grabbed his second from the penalty spot after Bishop was fouled, then Jack Lankester made it 3-0 just before the break with a low strike.
With 10 minutes remaining Tayo Edun made it 4-0 with a 25-yard shot, then two minutes later Jackson completed his hat-trick before the visitors bagged a late consolation.
Meanwhile, Blues loanee Trevoh Chalobah joined the England senior squad for training earlier today.
Chalobah is one of three Town players with the U20 squad for Monday's friendly against Germany at Colchester alongside Flynn Downes and Andre Dozzell.
Town: Wright, Cotter, Nsiala, Donacien, Kenlock (Clements 46), McLoughlin, Bishop (Folami 60), Edun, Ward, Lankester, Jackson.

What Would Eric Gates Say? by millvalleyblue
I started supporting Ipswich when I was six. I’m 49 now and live in Mill Valley, just north of San Francisco. I grew up in Cork. People always ask: Ipswich? Why? The reason was my best friend, Christopher, supported Ipswich. I’ve no reason why he did. All the other kids supported Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal or Leeds.
Feeling Very Blue Not Watching You by Pessimistic
Being an overseas supporter means I get to see all the live streams of Ipswich Town games for a seasonal subscription fee. Great idea! Well, it used to be, until one day I could not log in and asked iFollow to resend my password.
Man v Fat Football - A Personal Blog by GavTWTD
I'm fat. There, I said it. I'm a 248lb/112kg bloke in my late 40s and I'm struggling with my weight. I've lacked the will power to either do something about it or, when I've succeeded, to keep it off.
Where We Might Be Without Asset Stripping by David_GG
I am writing today to put forward my opinion about the sorry sad state of Ipswich Town and I suspect a number of other clubs around the land with supporters who feel as if they are suffering at the hands otherwise hugely successful businessmen and women as owners.
Where Did It All Go Wrong for Paul Hurst? by Herbivore
The dust has not yet settled on the reign of Town's shortest-serving permanent manager, a reign the significance and memorability of which is likely to be more dependent on our post-Paul Hurst fate than on his mere 14 league games in charge.
