"The scoreline was disappointing but the way we went about our job was good"

Stuart Taylor said he was pleased with Town’s performance despite falling to a 2-1 defeat against Arsenal U21s in the EFL Trophy.

Blues took the lead through Jon Nolan before a George Lewis strike on the stroke of half-time brought the Gunners level. The visitors took all three points thanks to a Flo Balogun winner in the second half.

“The scoreline was disappointing but the way we went about our job was good. It was pleasing,” Town’s assistant manager told iFollow Ipswich.

“We ended up with seventeen shots or something like that, which was very good and it was pleasing in that sense.

“The League is our priority. It was last season and it’s no different this season. We will try and stay in the cups as long as we can.”

Corrie Ndaba was involved in a nasty collision with the Arsenal goalkeeper in injury time and Stuart gave an update on Corrie and also Toto Nsiala who was due to start the game but was pulled out in the warm-up as a precaution.

“The worrying thing with Corrie is that we thought it was a clash of heads but actually he took a dead leg out of it. He’s feeling a lot better now and he’s fine.

“Toto was feeling it a little bit in his hamstring and we didn’t want to take a chance. From a precautious point of view, we took him off to rest him up.”
