Ipswich 0 – 1 Town

The early season success, optimism and excitement that the Terriers are currently enjoying is in stark contrast to the fortunes of their hosts.

David Wagner would reintroduce Mark Hudson and Chris Lowe to his defensive ranks following their one match bans, in what resembled a more common looking back line for Town.

With the experienced Dean Whitehead playing alongside Hogg in the deeper lying role Town continued to look resolute and untied against a side so clearly lacking in confidence.

Chances were at a premium during the game with = Huddersfield going closest to heading back to the changing rooms in front when Elias Kachunga reacted quickest and saw his shot rebound of the post, for Wells to see his follow up saved by the Ipswich Goalkeeper.

Man City loanee, Aaron Mooy would once again be the star man for Town and catch the eye of his already vast amount of admirers, which had travelled down from West Yorkshire.

Almost inevitably, the goal would come through a set-piece, and that of Aaron Mooy. A delicious in-swinging corner from the Socceroo had the ball screaming “HEAD-ME!!!!!!!” to which the onrushing Schindler replied “Guten Tag!!!!” scoring his first goal in English football and securing all three points.

Over the course of the game it became more and more obvious why Ipswich are experiencing a goal drought with chances from open play at an alarmingly low rate for the home side.

Ipswich’s best chance was a Tom Lawrence free-kick, but that was really as good as it got from the nervous hosts. In the 66th minute Ipswich would finally registered a shot on target to a chorus ironic “We’ve had a shot” chants.

As the game entered its final scene with the result all but assured for the Terriers, a noticeable sense of discomfort grew amongst the home crowd.

Not really a game for the footballing purists, but another three points and securing top-spot for another two weeks as we head into the international break.

Ooh to be a…
