'On average, Ely notch up 3.7 goals per game.'

Ely upped their tempo in the second half and some flowing play midway through the half allowed two further goals for Dan Jolley, a brace for in-form Tommy Hugo and a rare foray up front from skipper Chris Purllant allowed a short corner drag flick to be despatched with ease. Ipswich pulled a goal back late on but never really troubled the solid Ely defence as the game petered out.
