Sam Morsy of Ipswich captained the Tractor Boys to a thrilling 1-0 victory against relegation-threatened MK Dons on Sunday afternoon. The Egyptian midfielder ended a four-month goal drought with an exquisite 20-yard strike in the 26th minute to secure victory for his side.
Ipswich had the upper hand for much of the game and created plenty of chances. Cumming saved a George Hirst strike and also made an excellent punch away from Conor Chaplin’s 25-yard effort moments before Town were awarded a penalty, with Scott Twine going close at the other end in stoppage time.
Ipswich have now won six consecutive league games this season, signaling that they may be beginning to find their footing again in the league. Although a top-two finish is far from certain, they will take heart from their performance.

But Amadou Bakayoko scored a late winner to give Wanderers their sixth win and extend their unbeaten streak to seven games. It is an immense boost for Ian Evatt’s side, who remain eight points away from the play-offs after this remarkable run.
