Ipswich schoolgirl Hannah Martin is preparing to play her first game for Team GB at the Australian Youth Olympic Festival, tomorrow morning (+11 GMT).

The Ipswich School pupil, from Holbrook, was part of the squad that was scheduled to play the hosts in the opening game of the four-team tournament, in Sydney.

Team GB play China on Thursday and USA on Saturday, before hopefully competing for the gold medal at finals day, on Sunday.

Martin, 17, is the younger sister of Ipswich Olympian, Harry, who played for GB at this summer’s Olympics.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy highlighted the performances of Josh Emmanuel, Jonas Knudsen and Tom Lawrence as positives after tonight’s goalless home draw with high-flying Brighton.

Ipswich Town couldn’t capitalise on Brighton finishing the game with 10 men as they played out a second successive goalless draw at Portman Road in front of their lowest league attendance in almost four years.

Ipswich Town have an opportunity to quickly bounce back from a 1-0 defeat to Leeds as they host Brighton and Hove Albion at Portman Road tonight.

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.
