Andrews sparks astonishing Ipswich revival
Sunday 11 December 2011
Trailing 2-0 at the interval at Oakwell and facing an eighth consecutive league defeat, Ipswich Town staged an astonishing second-half revival to thrash Barnsley 5-3.
A Craig Davies penalty in the 14th minute, after Ipswich's goalkeeper, David Stockdale, had brought down Daniel Drinkwater, and Ricardo Vaz Te, with a clever diving header that flew in off Stockdale's near post seemed to have put the Tykes in complete control. But 22 seconds into the second period, Keith Andrews fired in right-footed from 25 yards, and three minutes later headed in from Aaron Cresswell's corner to level.
Just after the hour, the Tykes were unable to deal with a another centre, this time delivered by Lee Martin, and James Collins' header gave the visitors the lead for the first time in the match. As Barnsley fought to get back in the match they left gaps which the Suffolk side fully exploited.
In the 68th minute a clever pass from Lee Bowyer found Michael Chopra whose right-foot shot across the goal flew in off the far post, 4-2. Jason Scotland's tap-in made it five. Davies' second, direct from a free-kick, made it 5-3 but was scant consolation for a second-half humbling.
