Fulham has advanced to the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup for the first time since the 2004-05 season, and one player who played a pivotal role in their convincing victory over Championship high-flyers Ipswich Town was none other than Jamaican international Bobby Reid.
The encounter, held at Portman Road, saw the Premier League side secure a 3-1 victory against the second-placed team in the Championship.
The action began early in the game when Harry Wilson opened the scoring for Fulham in the ninth minute.
Reid’s well-timed pass found Wilson, who expertly rounded the advancing Ipswich Town goalkeeper, Christian Walton, before slotting the ball into an unguarded net.
Fulham continued to press their advantage, hitting the woodwork twice. Wilson’s low cross set up Rodrigo Muniz, who calmly finished to make it 2-0 in Fulham’s favour.
Reid’s presence played a crucial role in maintaining control and creating opportunities for his team.
The third goal for Fulham was added by Tom Cairney, further solidifying their lead. In this instance, Reid contributed his second assist of the evening, demonstrating his creativity in the midfield.
Despite Ipswich managing to pull one back with a late consolation goal from Elkan Baggott, Fulham’s victory was never in doubt, and they secured a place in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals.
