Ipswich Town take on Brentford this evening as they search for their first victory under manager Paul Hurst (7.45pm).

It’s bound to be an emotional occasion at Portman Road as the home crowd pays tribute to legendary defender Kevin Beattie following his sad passing on Sunday.

A minute’s applause will be held prior to this evening’s game with Brentford, in which the Ipswich players will wear black armbands to remember a man who played such a big role in Sir Bobby Robson’s Town sides of the 1970s and 80s.

“It would be a fitting evening to win because I’m sure, due to his relationship with the football club, he would be looking down and desperately hoping we will get that win,” Hurst said.

“He wouldn’t be thinking it’s for him, but it would be nice to get that victory and then dedicate it to someone who is so special to this football club.
