IPSWICH Town's Carling Cup hoodoo against lower league opposition continued tonight as they went out on penalties to the MK Dons.
Dan Harding missed the crucial spot-kick as the home side won the shoot-out 5-3 after a 3-3 draw after extra time.
Town had looked to have done enough in extra-time after Owen Garvan's strike gave them a 3-2 lead. But a Kevin Gallen penalty in the dying seconds took the match to penalties.
The Blues made a terrible start at the newly opened Stadium: MK, going 2-0 down in the first half-hour.

But Town rallied and gave the travelling support hope when last season's top scorer Alan Lee stroked in his second penalty in successive games, on the stroke of half-time.
