Yeovil Town went down to a 2-1 defeat at Portman Road tonight, as Ipswich Town came from a goal behind to secure all three points. The Glovers ended up going home pointless despite Joel Grant producing a superb shot into the top corner just before half time after good work by Andy Williams up front.
That goal came somewhat against the run of play, and so it was no surprise to see the Suffolk club come back into the match, with Daryl Murphy's equaliser coming after he notched the rebound from his own shot that had hit the crossbar. Then Aaron Creswell turned the tables as he took advantage from a half-clearance to put the Tractor Boys ahead - a lead that on the whole they didn't look like surrendering, despite Joe Ralls almost snatching a point deep into injury time when his shot was saved by Dean Gerken.
