Ipswich Town will travel to League One Accrington Stanley in the third round of the FA Cup.

The Blues, winners of the FA Cup in 1978 have endured a miserable time in recent years in the competition.

Indeed Town haven’t got past the third round since they beat Blackpool in the third round in 2010.

Since then the Blues have lost eight third round ties, including a infamous 2017 clash against then-non-league Lincoln City, who Town failed to beat despite two attempts to do so.

For current Ipswich Town players Kayden Jackson and Janoi Donacien, it will be a quick return to a club they left in the summer to join the Blues at Portman Road when Paul Hurst signed them, Donacien on loan.

It is not a clash that will be easy for Paul Lambert’s side, who are currently bottom of the Championship with just one league win in 20.

Stanley are currently in 11th place in League One, having won seven, drawn six and lost seven of their opening 20 league encounters.
