Ipswich Town’s start to the 2023-24 season has been nothing short of amazing, with the Tractor Boys taking down pretty much every team that comes their way.

Aside from Leeds United, who defeated them in league action in a 4-3 thriller at Portman Road back in August, the Tractor Boys have defeated everyone else in Championship and EFL Cup action, proving that head coach Kieran McKenna has something special going on with his current squad.

The Suffolk outfit have acclimatised to the Championship incredibly well after finishing 2nd in League One last season, winning seven out of their first eight matches to be level on points with top of the league Leicester City at this current moment.



This has included a run in the EFL Cup, with victories over Bristol Rovers and Reading paving the way for a delicious encounter with Premier League side Wolves at Portman Road on Tuesday evening.

What happened when Ipswich Town played Wolves?
Both teams made numerous substitutions, and after 15 minutes, it appeared like Gary O’Neil’s squad depth would be too much, as goals from Hwang Hee-chan and Toti put the top level side up 2-0.



Ipswich were level at halftime due to goals from Chelsea loanee Omari Hutchinson and Freddie Ladapo, but the best was yet to come on 58 minutes.

Midfielder Jack Taylor, who was signed from Peterborough United over the summer but has only made one league start so far, collected the ball in midfield after a patient passing move from Ipswich and launched a powerful right-footed effort towards Dan Bentley’s goal from around 25 yards out.
Bentley could only stand there and get one hand on it, but it wasn’t enough to keep the startling strike out of the net.


That goal proved to be the game-changer as Ipswich secured their passage into the last 16 of the competition, where they will find out on Wednesday night as to who they will play next.
And supporters of Town cannot stop watching the goal, with this one praising Taylor’s impact after having to remain patient for starts in the early stages of his career at the club.
Another fan meanwhile has outlined McKenna’s influence for the types of goals they are now scoring.




This Ipswich fan meanwhile cannot stop re-watching the wonder-goal…
Whilst another thinks that we have already seen the best strike of the 2023-24 campaign..
Another supporter believes that even Lionel Messi would have been proud of scoring such a goal…
When will Ipswich Town find out their Round Four opponents in the EFL Cup?
Following Man CIty’s clash with Newcastle United on Wednesday night, the draw for Round Four – the last 16 – of the EFL Cup will be made soon after.



So far, the Tractor Boys can only face Manchester United and Burnley from the Premier League, with the majority of the remaining top division clubs competing later tonight to win their spots.
