Ipswich Town, the high-flying English Championship side, orchestrated a stunning comeback against Premier League outfit Wolves in the Carabao Cup third round, with Jamaican international Omari Hutchinson playing a pivotal role in the game.
Hutchinson’s performance, combined with a spectacular long-range strike from Jack Taylor, ensured Ipswich Town’s passage to the fourth round of the competition for the first time since 2010.
The Premier League side seemed to be on cruise control after Hwang Hee-chan and Toti found the net within the opening 15 minutes.
Hwang capitalised on a defensive error, courtesy of a misplaced pass from Dominic Ball, to put Wolves ahead.
Toti then doubled their lead after Wolves’ goalkeeper Vaclav Hladky denied Santiago Bueno, but the Uruguayan reacted quickest to slot in the rebound.
However, it was Jamaica’s Omari Hutchinson who ignited Ipswich’s resurgence.
The 19-year-old, on loan from Chelsea, displayed his attacking threat by beating Wolves’ shot-stopper Dan Bentley at his near post.
Hutchinson’s goal injected renewed hope into the Ipswich faithful, who were eager to see their team progress in the Carabao Cup.
With seven victories in their opening eight league games, Kieran McKenna’s Ipswich Town side refused to relent.
The hosts continued to press forward in pursuit of an equaliser, and their efforts bore fruit when Freddie Ladapo was given too much space on the edge of the penalty area, making no mistake as he leveled the score.
The climax of the contest arrived courtesy of Jack Taylor’s remarkable long-range strike.
Positioned approximately 30 yards from goal, Taylor unleashed a powerful shot that soared past Dan Bentley, capping off a fine passing move.
Taylor’s goal sealed Ipswich Town’s victory, leaving the Premier League side stunned and ensuring the Championship club a place in the next round of the Carabao Cup.
