Ipswich 3-0 Barnsley

Jonathan Stead, Owen Garvan and Ivan Campo scored as Ipswich beat Barnsley.

Richard Wright denied Diego Leon, Dennis Souza Guedes and Iain Hume before Stead struck from 15 yards after a poor clearance from Heinz Muller.

The keeper denied Alan Quinn and Campo before Garvan finished a break with a shot from the edge of the area.

Muller failed to stop a shot from Campo before Reuben Noble-Lazarus came on to become the Football League's youngest player at 15 years and 45 days.

The striker beat by 113 days a record equalled in 1951 and which had stood since 1929.

Noble-Lazarus beat the record originally set by Bradford Park Avenue's Albert Geldard and equalled in 1951 by Ken Roberts of Wrexham. Both were aged 15 years and 158 days.

Ipswich boss Jim Magilton:

"The result was far more important than the performance. We set very high standards at this club and we know we've fallen a bit short.

"Up until the goal, they were probably the better side. They came and produced really good football.

"Barnsley manager Simon Davey should take an awful lot of credit for the way his team played."

Barnsley boss Simon Davey on Reuben Noble-Lazarus:

"I've tried to integrate him as quickly as I could into the first team.

"He is a confident lad but he is still only 15. He is a talent and we need to nurture him in the right way.

"We need to look after him. He has got to be dipped in and dipped back out."
