Having netted three extra-time goals last night, Ipswich Town secured their place in the third round of the Capital One Cup - and will face Premier League giants Manchester United next month.

The game is scheduled to take place at the famous ‘theatre of dreams’ on Tuesday, September 22 but the date could change.

Town last met United in April 2002, when they were beaten by the Reds 1-0 at Portman Road.
