Ipswich Town beat Colchester United 5-0 at the Community Stadium this evening.

PREVIEW: U's friendly will give us a few clues and could calm a few nerves

Tonight's game is the Blues' first on English soil following two weeks in Germany.

Paul Lambert's side lost their first game 3-2 to Bundesliga side Paderborn before being beaten 4-1 by Fortuna Dusseldorf and losing out on penalties following a 0-0 draw with Meppen at the Interwetten Cup.

The trip to Colchester will see more than 2,000 supporters travel to the Essex club, where Lambert managed earlier in his career.

The U's are likely to include Dean Gerken in goal, following his Ipswich Town exit at the end of last season.
