FORMER Colchester United hero Kane Vincent-Young netted his first goal for Ipswich Town as the Blues soared back to the top of the League One table after a 1-0 victory at Gillingham.

The defender headed home Kayden Jackson’s cross in the 32nd minute of Saturday's contest.

It proved the pivotal moment in another precious victory for Town, who recorded their fifth successive league clean sheet to equal a club record.

In the process, they notched their fourth away win of the season and with previous leaders Coventry City not playing, Town returned to the top with 21 points from a possible 27.

Blues boss Paul Lambert made four changes from the team that beat MK Dons 1-0 on Tuesday, again starting in a 3-5-2 system.

Luke Woolfenden returned on the right of the back three, alongside skipper Luke Chambers and James Wilson.

Gwion Edwards was at left wing-back, with Vincent-Young on the opposite flank, while Andre Dozzell came into the centre of midfield ahead of Cole Skuse and Flynn Downes.

Alan Judge was also back in the side, playing in a role off main striker Jackson.

James Norwood, who aggravated a groin injury on Tuesday, dropped to the bench along with Jon Nolan, Emyr Huws and Luke Garbutt.

Town's winning goal came just after the half-four mark.

Jackson and Dozzell exchanged passes and the former sent over a deep cross that Vincent-Young met at the far post, heading home his first Town goal.

It proved the only one of the game and Town are now unbeaten in their last ten league games - a sequence they will look to extend further when Tranmere Rovers visit Portman Road next Saturday.
