The scoreline at half time was 6-0 courtesy of a braces from Joe Finding and Nathan Foad and further goals from Ben Read and Manish Patel.

This was all about an unselfish team performance with Ipswich unable to live with the quality of movement and slick passing that City produced from start to finish.

The second half saw four further goals, including man-of-the-match Brendan Andrews finishing off the move of the game, Patel getting his second and Read adding a further two to complete his hat-trick with the final hit of the game.

What defines the scoring potency of this side is the number of different players getting on the scoresheet. Five different players scored yesterday and that didn’t include regular marksmen Adam Wilson, Ross Ambler and Danny Sisson.
