Leasing.com Trophy: Exeter City 2-1 Ipswich Town

Lee Martin
Attacking midfielder Lee Martin's goal was his seventh of the season in all competitions

Exeter City reached the last eight of the Leasing.com Trophy as Lee Martin's stoppage-time winner knocked out League One promotion-chasers Ipswich Town.

Martin swept in Nigel Atangana's last-gasp knockdown, after Matt Jay thought he had won it with a free-kick that was expertly saved by Ipswich's Tomas Holy.

Having made 10 changes, League Two high fliers Exeter led just before half-time from Nicky Ajose's close-range effort.

Will Keane levelled with a neat finish after the break, but City struck late.

Paul Lambert's Ipswich, who have now lost five of their last seven matches and have not won a league game in two months, had been the highest-ranked senior side remaining in the competition.
