Tyreece John-Jules got back in the scoresheet in a bizarre draw with Ipswich Town against Charlton Athletic on Saturday.
Earlier this week, Arsenal loanee Tyreece John-Jules had admitted that whilst he’s enjoying his spell on loan with Ipswich Town, he would’ve liked to have score a bit more often.
“I’d have liked to have scored more goals but it’s early in the season and I’m sure the goals will come,” John-Jules said. “I’m not too worried about that.”
Days later, the striker showed he was right to remain calm, heading home a goal against Charlton Athletic. He got onto the end of a cross into the box to power an unstoppable header into the net from close range.
The goal made the score 2-0 to Ipswich, and you can watch it here from 0:20.
Charlton pulled one back before John-Jules was substituted in the 71st minute, after which the match took a turn for the bizarre.
Hosts Charlton equalised in the 76th minute, and the match seemed to be heading for a draw.
Freddie Ladapo then scored in injury time to make it 3-2 to Ipswich, before Sam Morsy scored three minutes later to secure the result at 4-2.
Or so he thought. Terell Thomas scored for Charlton in the 96th minute to make it 4-3, before George Dobson scored in the 99th minute to make it 4-4.
In the space of eight injury-time minutes, Ipswich had both taken a late two-goal lead and thrown it away.
After all that, John-Jules’ goal was somewhat brushed over in the post-match reporting. But the important thing is that the Arsenal youngster is back in the goals and giving his manager a reason to keep picking him.
Next up, Ipswich travel to Bracknell Town for an FA Cup clash on Monday, 7th November at 19:45 GMT.
