Tuesday 24th August 2010 - Crewe Alexandra 0 Ipswich Town 1 (aet) League Cup Round 2
A drive up to Cheshire to watch Ipswich play away again the cup ( never seem to get a cup tie at home). The team line ups indicated that Ipswich were going out to win this, and the next 90 minutes did see plenty of attacking football and goal scoring opportunities - trouble was it was both teams who were attacking and getting those opportunities to score. But after 90 minutes it was still nil, nil and so extra time had to be played. Norris got the winning goal so we now just have to wait till Saturday to see if we get that long awaited home cup tie.
The game also saw the debut for Ipswich of Jason Scotland, he threw himself around, and there was plenty to throw around! But I have a feeling he will get the goals we need - if not the Crew forward Donaldson looked a good bet for someone who could play at a higher level.
'Big ground but small crowd'
The crowd of just over 3,000 seemed to be lost within the Gresty Road ground- leading to the Ipswich fans singing 'Your ground is to big for you'!
