Missed chances rued

4 February 2014

Ipswich Town U21s 2 Millwall U21s 2

Chopper's young Lions dominated proceedings in Tuesday's U21 clash at Ipswich but were left cursing missed chances and grateful for a last gasp leveller.

The Tractor Boys created few clear cut opportunities, but took the lead through a Paul Taylor penalty.

With Jack Powell and Richard Chaplow dominant in midfield, The Lions enjoyed plenty of possession and carved out a string of opportunities.

Millwall levelled through Jermaine Easter who converted at the far post when Charlie Penney flicked on a Farrell corner.

However, the visitors spurned further opportunities to win the game and were made to pay when Ipswich were awarded another spot-kick with four minutes left, which Taylor again netted.

But some semblance of justice was done right at the death when Easter won and converted a penalty of his own to level things up.

Afterwards Neil Harris commented: "I was delighted with the way we pressed the ball, with our attitude and desire and the way we got into wide areas.

We must have had 15 or more chances, and on another day John Marquis could have had a hat-trick.

However, our conversion rate was disappointing as was the fact that we conceded two penalties against a side that created very little. Those are the lessons we must learn."
