Scotland scores eighth goal
T&T striker Jason Scotland scored for Ipswich Town in their English Championship match yesterday however his item was cancelled out by Barnsley’s Jacob Mellis in the dying seconds. Midfielder Mellis collected a pass from Kieran Trippier in the third minute of stoppage time before drilling his low strike beyond Marton Fulop. Substitute Scotland, who is the subject of a lone move back to his former club, Swansea City had put Ipswich in front on 82 minutes after Lee Steele parried Lee Martin’s shot.
Fulop had earlier denied Danny Haynes, Garry O’Connor and Bobby Hassell, while Connor Wickham, Tamas Priskin and Lee Martin shot wide for the visitors. Ipswich had won their previous three Championship fixtures and must have thought it would become four when Scotland struck. But their performance had scarcely warranted a victory and Mellis’ second goal in successive games since joining the Tykes on loan from Chelsea was just reward for a good second-half performance. The first-half was poor and Ipswich suffered a blow when the influential David Norris went off injured after 15 minutes.
Barnsley’s play after the restart forced a series of saves from Fulop, the pick of which was probably his full-stretch effort to deny Haynes. With the draw, Ipswich which started Carlos Edwards at right-back slipped to 15th on the 24-team table with 38 points, three behind Barnsley which is 13th. Queen’s Park Rangers lead the 24-team table with 59 points from 30 matches followed by Cardiff City and and Norwich City with 54 each, then Swansea, a point behind.
