Watch: David McGoldrick scored a fine header as Ipswich fell to high-flying Leeds

McGoldrick scored his fifth goal in all competitions this season on Saturday afternoon at Elland Road.

Soccer - Sky Bet Championship - Ipswich Town v Charlton Athletic - Portman Road McGoldrick has scored in successive match-days for Ipswich.

DAVID MCGOLDRICK PROVED again today that, when fully fit and flying high, the forward continues to be a goal threat inside the penalty area for Ipswich and remains one of the Championship’s most consistent strikers season after season.

Although Mick McCarthy’s side fell victim to another defeat on Saturday evening with a 3-2 loss to league leaders Leeds United, the Ireland international was on the scoresheet for the fifth time this season.

His goal brought the sides level in the first half following Pierre-Michel Lasogga’s opener for the hosts, before Kalvin Philips and an own goal from Ipswich’s Bartosz Bialkowski made sure of the result.

McGoldrick rose high to meet Grant Ward’s free-kick to draw the side’s level with a well-measured header inside the box.

It was the 29-year-old’s fifth goal in all competitions so far this season and a second goal in as many weeks, following another strike in a 2-0 win against Bolton last weekend.

McGoldrick scored a brace against Luton in the League Cup at the beginning of August, whilst also getting on the scoresheet against Barnsley last month before his most recent run of form for the Tractor Boys.
