Shock as Ipswich win cup match

There was widespread shock in Suffolk last night as Ipswich finally won a cup match under Mick McCarthy.

It has taken eight matches and nearly three seasons for the Town boss to win a game in the FA or Capital One Cup.

But McCarthy had a cunning tactic to beat Stevenage at Portman Road – combining two midgets to score the winner.

Pint-sized Jay Tabb slotted home a clever cross from David McGoldrick after a sweet move involving the even-smaller Ryan Fraser.

Teddy Sheringham’s visitors complained they did not even see Tabb or Fraser in the grass.

Pleased as punch: McCarthy finally wins

Victory over Stevenage, who had taken a predictable lead in the first half, gave fans a much-needed reminder of what it is like to progress to the next round of a cup.

McCarthy’s cup record record is losing to Stevenage previously, crashing out to Crawley, getting beaten at Aston Villa, bowing out at Preston after a replay, and losing to Southampton at home after a gritty draw at St Mary’s last season.
