Ipswich Town are in EFL Trophy action against near-neighbours Colchester United this evening - kick-off 7.30pm.

Ipswich have already qualified from the group stage of the competition but could secure home advantage - meaning a home tie in the last 32 - with a win or a draw.

Colchester would win the group with a win over Town.

"There will be changes. Some of the younger lads will play. I've got to see what they can do in front of a crowd," Paul Lambert said.

Gwion Edwards and Emyr Huws look to get on the end of a cross into the box during the first half.
