Ipswich Town are in Carabao Cup action this evening as they travel to take on Exeter City at St James Park.

The Blues have lost to lower-league opposition five times in the last seven seasons, with Paul Hurst looking to put that right.

Paul Hurst is set to put out a strong side against the Grecians, knowing the Blues need to be more clinical in front of goal after taking just a point from their opening two Championship matches.

“I think it’s pretty clear but we have got to be more clinical, there’s no doubt about that,” he said. “I think the second chance for Wardy when he’s gone to look to volley, I think if he takes off and heads it, and I’m not saying that’s ever going to be his biggest strength, but just throwing himself at the ball, I don’t think the defender has a chance to get there and that would have out us in front.”
