Ipswich And West Ham Play Out Draw

Ipswich And West Ham Play Out Draw

Pre-season continued for Ipswich with West Ham United the opponents, in a game that ended in a 0-0 draw, described by the official website though as 'an entertaining 90 minutes.'

The second pre-season friendly, and first played at Portman Road, gave Aaron Cresswell the chance to make a return within two-weeks of leaving Town as he lined up for his new club West Ham, and he caused early problems.

Jack Marriott had the best chance of the first half with his turn of pace putting him away but the young striker pulled his effort wide.

Cresswell did hit the bar too, his cross was deflected onto it mind with both sides fielding entirely different sides in the second half with Bartosz Bialkowski one of those coming on as the fans got a first look at the new 'keeper.

Further minutes on the pitch is always the main thing in pre-season, a nil-nil draw with a premier league side isn't a bad result though either is it.

First-half XI: Gerken, Hewitt, Berra, Clarke, Mings, Stewart, Skuse, Bishop, Henshall, Marriott, Nouble.

Second-half X1: Bialkowski, Parr, Chambers, Smith, Wyatt, Anderson, Hyam, Veseli, Tabb, Murphy, Taylor. Subs: McQueen, Lawrence, Crowe.
