On This Day: 26th October

26 October 2017

A brief look back at two games that occurred on this day in years gone by...


Ipswich 1-0 Southend

A late goal from the home side ended Blues run in the English League Cup.

Blues came close to opening the scoring in the early stages of the game, when Dean Neal headed Andy Rogers cross over the bar.

Ipswich took the lead after an onslaught of attacks in the 80th minute.

David Lowe burst into the box and slotted the ball past the advancing Paul Newell.



Southend 1-1 Charlton

Two first half goals meant the game stayed level come full time.

Charlton scored the first from close range following a counter attack from their own half.

David Webb’s side came close to equalising moments later when Brett Angell fired a long-range effort just wide of the post.

Blues pulled one back in the 39th minute after Keith Jones nodded in John Cornwell’s corner from six-yards.
