Reggae Boy Omari Hutchinson proved to be the hero as his late strike secured a vital point for Ipswich Town in their encounter against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday afternoon.
Kieran McKenna’s side, desperate to improve their recent league form, faced a stern challenge from the visiting Baggies, who initially took the lead through Tom Fellows’ well-placed effort in the 18th minute.
Despite the setback, Ipswich pressed forward relentlessly, seeking an equaliser before the break.
Their persistence paid off early in the second half, as Nathan Broadhead capitalised on George Edmundson’s flicked header to level the score within the opening minute.
The momentum swung back and forth as Andi Weimann had a goal controversially disallowed, only for John Swift to put West Brom ahead with a thunderous strike from distance.
Tragedy struck for the hosts when Daryl Dike suffered a serious ankle injury, adding further tension to the match.
However, Hutchinson emerged as the saviour for Ipswich, seizing the moment deep into stoppage time to fire a low shot past the West Brom defence, sending the home crowd into raptures.
The draw sees Ipswich Town and West Brom maintain their respective positions in the Championship table, with both teams sitting fourth and fifth, underlining the significance of Hutchinson’s late intervention.
