Ten-man Ipswich edge thriller to keep hopes alive

26 Feb 2018
Ipswich v West Brom, PL Cup

Aaron Drinan scores twice in 3-2 win over West Brom as Tractor Boys hope for a favour from Group E leaders Aston Villa in order to progress

Ipswich Town kept alive their slim hopes of reaching the last 16 with a 3-2 win over bottom-placed West Bromwich Albion

All five goals at Portman Road came in the second half, the first almost immediately from the restart from Aaron Drinan for the hosts. 

On 53 minutes, Ipswich's Sam Goteni was sent off for a foul in the area on Sam Field, who equalised from the penalty spot. 

Ben Morris's stunning finish restored Town's lead but West Brom pegged them back again through Jamie Soule's volley. 

Ipswich gave the Baggies no time to recover for a third time when Drinan won it with his second in the 90th minute. 

The Tractor Boys stay third on goal difference and need Sheffield United to lose heavily in their final match against leaders Aston Villa, which has been postponed to a later date.
