Ipswich Town ease to a comfortable 3-0 win at Portman Road Stadium. Ipswich Town were looking to pick up points, following a 3-2 victory against Portsmouth FC while Cambridge had lost their previous match against Derby County. Ipswich Town and Cambridge currently occupy 2nd and 10th spots in the table, with 27 points and 16 points respectively after 8 matches.

After an uneventful first half, Ipswich Town applied pressure in the second and were rewarded, when Tyreece John-Jules gave them the lead, at 72 minutes. The momentum was again with Ipswich Town, who then scored again courtesy of a goal from Kyle Edwards in the 75th minute to establish a 2-0 result. They then scored again, pulling level thanks to a second effort from Kyle Edwards just before the final whistle to make it 3-0.

Substitutions for Ipswich Town included Lee Evans, Kyle Edwards, Tyreece John-Jules, Kayden Jackson and Kane Vincent-Young for Dominic Ball, Wes Burns, Conor Chaplin, Freddie Ladapo and Leif Davis, respectively. Cambridge brought on Jack Lankester and Fejiri Okenabirhie, to replace Liam O’Neil and Sam Smith.
