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.

Can they reverse that this time around? Will they beat Man Utd away and qualify for the next round in a famous cupset? Should Mick stick with the youngsters who played last night, or bring in his more experienced players?
