Ainsley Maitland-Niles earned a penalty and won Man of the Match for Ipswich Town against Birmingham on Friday in what ended as a 1-1 draw.
The result unfortunately meant the Tractor Boys missed the chance to go second in the Championship and instead leaves them level on points with Middlesbrough and Burnley (14).

The penalty that Maitland-Niles won was dubious to say the least as the 18-year-old picked up the ball deep in his own half and proceeded to run over three-quarters of the pitch by himself, only for Birmingham’s Jonathan Spector to slide tackle him right on the goal line.
Brett Pitman then slotted the ball home from the spot.
