Full-back Myles Kenlock scored the only goal of the game, as he got forward well to slam the ball home following a neat pass from new signing Gwion Edwards.

The Blues had plenty of possession without creating too many chances, in what is sure to be another useful 90 minutes as Paul Hurst continues to assess his squad ahead of the start of the Championship season.

Bartosz Bialkowski returned in the Ipswich goal following his time at the World Cup with Poland, with the only change to his defence seeing Josh Emmanuel get the start at right-back ahead of Jordan Spence. Flynn Downes was paired with Cole Skuse in midfield, while a three of Grant Ward, Martyn Waghorn and Jordan Roberts operated behind lone striker Freddie Sears.

The Blues saw plenty of the ball in the first half, with Skuse in particular pinging it around well, but only two chances of note were created.

The first saw Roberts fire wide after he picked up on a loose ball on the edge of the box, before Waghorn floated his free-kick into the side-netting as the first half was drawing to a close.

Andre Dozzell, Tristan Nydam and Gwion Edwards were introduced at the break, with the latter providing the final ball as Kenlock fired home to give the Blues the lead after 67 minutes.

That’s how it stayed, as the Blue survived a late push from the hosts.
