Ipswich Town’s Carabao Cup first round match against Luton Town, at Kenilworth Road, will take place on Tuesday, August 13 (7.45pm ko) – subject to TV selections.

Town, preparing for life in the third-tier after finishing rock-bottom of the Championship, will - on paper - be the underdogs against a Hatters side preparing for life in the Championship following their League One title.

The draw for the Carabao Cup was recently made at Morrison's in Colindale, North London,

Ipswich were knocked out of the competition in the first round last season, losing on penalties away at League Two side Exeter City.

They beat Luton in round one the previous season, with David McGoldrick scoring both goals against the then League Two side, before going on to lose at Crystal Palace in round two.
