Vital statistics: Ipswich Town

8th October 2018
First team

The Swans were beaten 3-2 by Ipswich Town on Saturday at the Liberty as Graham Potter's side suffered a third league loss of the campaign.

Here, we take a look at the key stats behind the five-goal Championship encounter.


73 - The Swans enjoyed the vast majority of possession during this game, with Potter's men having almost three-quarters of the ball during the 90 minutes.

13 - The home side had 13 corners in the match, though Ipswich's sixth and final corner proved the difference as Trevoh Chalobah nodded home the winner with six minutes left.

3 - Gwion Edwards became the third former Swan to score against the club this season, Pablo Hernandez (Leeds) and Joe Allen (Stoke) being the others.

1 - Ipswich picked up their first win in the Championship this season in what was their 12th attempt.

12 - Despite the fact that the Swans scored twice on Saturday, only five teams in the second tier have scored fewer goals than Potter's team so far.

8 - Potter's men have collected eight points from their six league games in SA1 this season. They have a slightly better return on the road, where they have chalked up nine points from six matches.

2 - Jonai Donacien's unfortunate own goal gave the Swans a deserved lead at the Liberty. That was not the only own goal, however, as Edwards' cross was turned into his own net by Mike van der Hoorn.
