Ipswich Town will play Birmingham City, at Portman Road, on the opening day of the 2017/18 Championship season.

Harry Redknapp’s side finished 19th last season but are looking to spend big this summer, having signed keeper David Stockdale and offered a contract to John Terry.

Mick McCarthy’s men return to pre-season training next Monday in preparation for their 16th successive season of Championship football.

The Blues finished a disappointing 16th last season – the club’s lowest finish in 58 years – and McCarthy has already embarked on a major freshening up of the squad this summer ahead of his fifth full season in charge at Portman Road.

• Sports writers Stuart Watson and Chris Brammer will host an interactive Facebook Live chat at 12.45pm today, followed immediately by a live Q&A webchat on this site.

Winning games of football is the best way to heal a damaged relationship between touchline and terrace, former Blues boss George Burley insists.

Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy has apologised for any offence he caused while celebrating Luke Chambers’ goal at Norwich on Sunday, but has reiterated he did not aim his comments at the Blues fans.

Match highlights from Ipswich Town’s dramatic 1-1 draw with rivals Norwich in the East Anglian derby.

Charlton Athletic U23 2

Shane McLoughlin was on the scoresheet but it wasn’t enough as Ipswich Town’s Under 23’s were beaten 2-1 by Charlton Athletic at Playford Road this afternoon, writes Kieren Standley.

Police have said they are working to identify supporters responsible for criminal damage at Norwich City’s ground ahead of derby clash against Ipswich Town in the East Anglian derby.

Luke Chambers insists Ipswich Town will be fuelled by a desire to finish above rivals Norwich between now and the end of the season.

What an absolute kick in the teeth, writes Karl Fuller in the wake of Ipswich Town’s 1-1 draw with Norwich City at Carrow Road.

What a shame. Mick McCarthy was only seconds away from having another favourite DVD to add to his collection of perfect away performances. You know the ones – shut up shop for the entire second half, then nick a winner from a set-piece, writes Northstander Terry Hunt,

No amount of counselling can get this increasingly fractured long-term relationship with Mick McCarthy and Ipswich Town back on track now.

As the dust continues to settle following Ipswich Town’s dramatic 1-1 draw at Norwich, sports writer Andy Warren hosts our weekly webchat to discuss all the latest goings on at Portman Road.
