FA CUP THIRD ROUND DRAW: Ipswich Town drawn away at Aston Villa in the Cup

14:52 02 December 2012

IPSWICH Town will travel to Premier League Aston Villa in the FA Cup Third Round.

The Blues were this afternoon drawn against Villa, now managed by former Norwich City boss Paul Lambert and with ex-Town favourite Darren Bent in their ranks.

Villa are currently fifth from bottom in the top-flight after winning just three of their first 15 league games this season.

The two sides last met in the 2001/02 season when a goalless draw at Portman Road followed a 2-1 win for the hosts at Villa Park.

Finidi George put Town in front but a brace from Juan Pablo Angel gave Villa the win.

In all, the two sides have met 53 times with Villa winning 22 of those and Ipswich 18.

  • Not a bad draw. Their home record is worse than ours. Be nice to stick one on Paul Lambert.

  • I would have much prefered this game at home given our more recent form at Portman Road with McCarthy at the helm. Then again, after Bolton, maybe our away performances are on the up too?

  • I doubt very much Town will be playing 'Premier League Aston Villa'... it is much more likely they will field a 3rd string mix of reserves and youth players... perhaps even Darren Bent.

Ipswich Town’s next home game takes place tonight – but how well do you know the opposition?

Ipswich Town captain Luke Chambers says the team has got to start trying to entertain the fans more ahead of tonight’s Championship clash with Brighton at Portman Road (7.45pm ko).

Ipswich Town skipper Luke Chambers feels criticism of him playing at right-back has been unjustified, but admits he’d love to nail down his preferred position of centre-back again.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy will continue to deploy a safety-first tactical approach heading into back-to-back home games.

Ipswich Town have nine players out injured for tomorrow night’s visit of Championship high-fliers Brighton, but the good news is that Grant Ward and Teddy Bishop are both available for selection.

Mick McCarthy has plenty of credit in the bank at Ipswich Town, but that could rapidly start to run out unless things begin to change.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy conceded his team were ‘poor’ in today’s 1-0 defeat at Leeds United and admitted a lack of goals is a concern.

Chris Wood’s first half goal was enough to secure Leeds United a fully-deserved 1-0 home victory over Ipswich Town this afternoon with Mick McCarthy’s men lacking an attacking edge.

Hoping for back-to-back away league wins, Mick McCarthy’s Ipswich visit Gary Monk’s Leeds.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy reacts incredulously to the merest suggestion captain Luke Chambers’ position in the team is under threat.
