Trialist Balint Bajner set up Ipswich's second, his cross on the hour-mark headed home at the near-post by Luke Hyam.

Visitng boss Mick McCarthy included another trialist in his starting line-up, Bajner joined by Kevin Bru, while Stephen Hunt missed out again due to a calf injury.

"It was a good workout for the lads, especially in the intense heat that both teams had to play in," McCarthy told Ipswich's official website.

"I thought we played well and I thought we deserved to win.

"I can't remember Gerks (Dean Gerken) having a save to make and I was thoroughly pleased with the performance.

"We're playing well and we've come through another game without picking up any injuries, so I'm very pleased."
