AFTER a disappointing result last week away to Letchworth, Magpies II bounced back with some authority in their first home league game of the season, beating Ipswich 6-0.

AFTER a disappointing result last week away to Letchworth, Magpies II bounced back with some authority in their first home league game of the season, beating Ipswich 6-0.

Magpies started well and created several chances which they were unable to convert. Ipswich enjoyed their share of pressure in the Magpies half but they couldn't penetrate a strong looking defensive line for Magpies.

Magpies nearly created an opening when a ball dropped for Robbie Kinsella, who struck a ferocious shot which struck the keeper in the face denting his helmet in the process.

Magpies finally opened the scoring when Dave Miller was on the end of a good break from the Magpies midfield and Martin Fields made sure and stole in from less than a yard out.

The last two minutes for the first half proved decisive when first Will Harrison pile-drived a drag flick into the top right-hand corner. The third was another well-worked break finished off by Dan Stallion.

Magpies started the second half the way they finished the first, and were soon five goals up. Robbie Kinsella finished the first of two from a tight angle going in off a post.

The second was a coolly converted slap by Martin Fields from a good cross from the right hand side.

Ipswich had a brief spell of pressure but created little. The rout was rounded off by a chip shot by Robbie Kinsella over the keeper's head finished on the volley by Gavin Coleman.

The game got fairly scrappy towards the end resulting in two yellow cards for Ipswich and one for Ben Wright when he got in a off the ball scuffle with a bloke twice the size of him.

Man of the match went to Will Harrison. Hopefully Magpies can carry this good result to Cambridge where they will face a Cambridge City side who are level on points with them.
