U23s Beat Owls to Return to Top of Table
Tuesday, 27th Oct 2020 14:25
Ross Crane (pictured), Brett McGavin and Corrie Ndaba were on target as Town’s U23s came from a goal down to beat Sheffield Wednesday 3-1 at Playford Road this afternoon.
The visitors took the lead in the 34th minute via Manuel but Crane, who joined the Blues from Bury Town in the summer, levelled eight minutes later.
McGavin gave Town the lead in the 84th minute from a free-kick with Ndaba completing the victory with the third three minutes later.
As a result of the victory, the young Blues return to the top of Professional Development League Two South.
McGavin had been tipped for a place among the subs for this evening's first-team game against Gillingham with Jon Nolan suspended for three matches and Flynn Downes and Cole Skuse still out injured, was involved.
Notably, Armando Dobra was missing from the side, perhaps indicating that the Albanian U21 international will be on the bench.
Among the U23s subs was schoolboy forward Jack Manly, involved at that level for the first time.
Former England and Town midfielder Kieron Dyer takes over as U23s coach on Thursday with Gerard Nash moving to a scouting role with the first team.
Meanwhile, the Blues’ U18s won 2-1 at Crewe Alexandra on Saturday with Tyrese Osbourne and Tawanda Chirewa netting the goals.
U23s: Przybek, Crowe, Baggott, Ndaba, Smith, McGavin, Crane, Healy, Brown, Gibbs, Viral. Subs: Bort, Stewart, Manly, Oppong, Siziba.

It's All Going Wrong, Again by sam_n1
There seems to be a pattern emerging of a consistent fall in form as this season starts to get up and running, especially during the Christmas fixtures. But who or what is down to?
The Grim Experience of Becoming a Socially-Distanced Supporter by chazza
Second only to the terrible the footballing performance against Portsmouth comes the grim experience of becoming a 'socially-distanced' supporter.
Season's Beatings by Moggasknockdown
It is a bitterly disheartening experience supporting Ipswich. At every sliding doors moment in our recent history we have taken the wrong path, at every opportunity for schadenfreude an ex-player will decisively score, or create or generally remind us all that they are happier now, away from the depressing, soul-destroying experience that was their Ipswich career.
