IPSWICH Town have named a strong squad for their first round clash at village side Walsham-le-Willows tomorrow night (7.45pm ko).

Mick McCarthy, who is expected to be in attendance at Summer Road, has opted to included a number of first-team squad players who have seen little action lately.

That means Michael Chopra, Scott Loach, Jay Emmanuel-Thomas and Jason Scotland have all been included – something that should swell the numbers for the Thurlow Nunn League club with tickets available on the gate.

Andy Drury, Luke Hyam and Bilel Mohsni have also been included in the 16-man squad along with Elliott Hewitt who was on the bench in Town’s 2-1 win over Burnley on Saturday.

  • With no disrespect to Walsham, this will be a reality check for certain non performing stars. Pull your finger out or this will be your future.

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?
