Town's Academy side take on Shrewsbury Town tonight at Portman Road in the third round of the FA Youth Cup, with a 7pm kick off.

Under 18s manager Richard hall wants the lads to sue it as part of their development.

He said: “The game has that extra edge in that it is a cup competition and hopefully the fans will come out and support the lads and again it will be a good learning curve for the youngsters here.

“The priority for us at the Academy is not about winning trophies really, it is about the development of the boys through the levels into the first team.

“We want to do well in the competition and being a knock out game, it will add that little extra pressure and perhaps tell us something about the boys.”
