Ipswich Town secured a fantastic comeback last night to snatch a result in the final minute of a game for the second match in succession.
They earned a point at Peterborough United at the weekend courtesy of Luke Chambers’ 90th-minute strike, going one better last night as Kayden Jackson’s goal gave them a 2-1 win against Wimbledon.
They had trailed for much of the encounter, Nesta Guinness-Walker giving the visitors the lead just before half time. It took until ten minutes from the end for them to level, James Norwood continuing his good form with a leveller for the Tractor Boys.
The final word was had by Jackson, a player widely believed to have flopped since his move from Accrington Stanley. A long ball over the top was flicked on and, after letting it bounce once, he rifled a cute half-volley into the back of the net.
It sparked delirium amongst the home supporters and that joy has continued after they’ve arrived home. Plenty of them have been on Twitter to talk positively about the striker, his goal and the result overall.
Impressive last 25 minutes tonight, #itfc playing all the way to end and deserving the win although Lambert’s decision to go one up front for the first hour was decidedly peculiar. Norwood and Jackson were class, finishers we’ve lacked for years…

Jackson's goal and things like that are why you go and watch football live, and not on TV. #ITFC

Positives. Win when playing awful. Jackson, Norwood linking well. Georgiou looks a great player. Still players to come back. Kept on going

Kayden Jackson is proving to be a real handful. Took his chance superbly tonight #ITFC

Dreadful before the change to 442. Deserved a boo, first for Lambert (even with relegation..) tells a lot. Much better with Jackson and with Georgeou 🔥 passing the ball in front of Kenlock. Got to smash Bolton Saturday #itfc
