Ipswich Town vs. Latics

Emirates FA Cup - First Round

5 November 2021

Keith Curle's outfit makes the long journey to Suffolk as they face Ipswich Town in the first round of the Emirates FA Cup (3pm KO).

Latics enter the famous cup competition on the back of a frustrating 3-1 defeat in the league against Swindon Town at Boundary Park.

Harry McKirdy and Tyreece Simpson got themselves on the scoresheet for the visitors before Carl Piergianni gave his side a bit of hope in the last minute.


However, Simpson notched another goal to his tally in added time to confirm the victory.

Form Guide

After a frantic transfer window, Ipswich head into the encounter with four wins in their last six fixtures but the Blues have won just one of their last 19 games in the world famous competition.

Bersant Celina, Macauley Bonne and Wesley Burns, amongst several others, have impressed the faithful at Portman Road since their arrival in the summer.

To add to this, the trio all found the back of the net against Wycombe Wanderers in midweek reinforcing their importance to the side.

Although, they suffered a defeat to Newport County at Rodney Parade in the first round of the Carabao Cup.

The Tractor Boys' Last Six:

  1. Wycombe Wanderers 1-4 Ipswich Town
  2. Plymouth Argyle 2-1 Ipswich Town
  3. Ipswich Town 2-1 Fleetwood Town
  4. Portsmouth 0-4 Ipswich Town
  5. Cambridge United 2-2 Ipswich Town
  6. Ipswich Town 2-1 Shrewsbury Town


Meetings: 21

Latics wins: 9
Ipswich wins: 7
Draws: 5

Scored - 37
Conceded - 35

The last time the sides met occurred in April 1997 with Latics tasting a 4-0 defeat on away soil in front of 11,535 supporters.

In January 1993, the boys in blue picked up their last win over our opposition which was in the Premier League. Joe Royle guided his side to three points in a 2-1 victory courtesy of goals from Mark Brennan and Paul Bernard.

We've faced Ipswich three times in the FA Cup, all happening between 1954 until 1964. However, Latics have failed to beat them in the competition and suffered two losses in the process.

Familiar Face

Latics fans will recognise George Edmundson in the blue and white of the Tractor Boys.

The 24-year-old, a product of the Oldham academy, impressed in the backline at Boundary Park in the 2018/19 campaign which resulted in him receiving a place in the EFL League Two Team of the Season as well as the club's Players' Player of the Season.

Rangers swooped in for the signature of the ace and he went on to represent the Scottish giants on 17 occasions. Edmundson, nicknamed 'The Fridge', remarkably scored against Bayer Leverkusen in the Europea League in March 2020.

Last season, Edmundson endured a loan stint at Derby County before joining Ipswich on a permanent deal in the summer.

In The Dugout

Paul Cook currently occupies the hot seat at Ipswich after a successful spell at Wigan Athletic.

Cook has been in post since March 2021 following the takeover at Portman Road and he's overseen a widescale of changes within their squad.

The 54-year-old had a lengthy playing career which began at Marine before Wigan acquired his services. He went on to represent a host of clubs such as Norwich City, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Burnley.

Cook has managed seven different clubs, achieving a promotion at three of them, and he was awarded LMA League Manager of the Year in 2017 for his leadership at Portsmouth.

Match Reports

Ipswich Town 1-1 Latics

6 November 2021

© Eddie Garvey

A sublime strike from Davis Keillor-Dunn saw Latics battle back to earn an Emirates FA Cup first round replay against higher-ranked opposition at Portman Road.

Keillor-Dunn found the goal in delightful fashion late in the first half to cap a superb team showing from Keith Curle’s side against Ipswich Town.

The attacker underlined his status as the man for the big occasion with another moment of brilliance, although Oldham will have left Suffolk in the knowledge that their reward could have been greater.

In terms of chances and on the balance of play, Latics were the superior side, with Dylan Bahamboula unable to convert a penalty shortly after the break as the visitors proved more than a match for the side from Sky Bet League One.

It means both teams will share ball number 26 in the draw for the second round on ITV on Monday evening.

Having recovered well from the concession of an early goal to emerge as the stronger side, Latics went in deservedly level at the break.

Keillor-Dunn equalised four minutes before the break, advancing to the edge of the Ipswich area before bending a sumptuous effort past the reach of Christian Walton and inside the far post.

Having become increasingly assertive during the opening half, it was a goal fully merited by Latics, who had started to create several chances.

Carl Piergianni’s header was deflected just wide from a fine Benny Couto cross and the visitors went close again minutes later, Jamie Bowden picking out Dylan Bahamboula, whose low effort trickled past the post.

And once level, Latics could have scored again in added time, Keillor-Dunn looking to release Jordan Clarke at the end of a sharp move, only for Cameron Burgess to make a block as the central defender was about to pull the trigger.

It had been a disappointing start for Curle’s side, Wes Burns firing a shot home from the centre of the Latics area after an initial effort from Macauley Bonne.

The hosts then threatened to take control, George Edmundson going close after a corner from Lee Evans who later had a free-kick blocked by Couto.

Jayson Leutwiler also saved from Bersant Celina, but Latics started to emerge as a force, Hallam Hope glancing a header wide before an effort from Bahamboula.

Having equalised in fantastic fashion, Latics started the second half where they had left off but were unable to take a golden chance eight minutes after the re-start.

Bahamboula saw a penalty clawed away by goalkeeper Walton, diving at full stretch to his right, the Congo international had his shirt tugged at a set-piece.

Latics continued to present danger on the break throughout the half, Hope and Whelan linking well before substitute Harry Vaughan almost combined with Hope but the visitors were unable to capitalise.

Leutwiler adjusted well to save with his feet from Conor Chaplin but the fact that the Latics ‘keeper had little to do was testament to a battling performance which deservedly earned a replay.


Oldham Athletic: Leutwiler Clarke, McGahey, Piergianni, Whelan, Hope, Keillor-Dunn, Fage (Adams 87), Bowden, Bahamboula (Vaughan 79), Couto.

Subs not used: Southerington, Dearnley, Da Silva, Diarra, Modi.
