The Blues travel to Kenilworth Road to take on the newly-promoted Championship side, offering Downes the opportunity to return to a club he spent time with during the 2017/18 season.

His loan at Luton saw him win promotion from League Two and gain valuable experience during his 10-game spell and, while Ipswich boss Paul Lambert has promised changes for this game, Downes wants to play.

"Of course I want to play again, especially at Luton," he said.

Both have come alongside Cole Skuse, with the youngster enjoying his partnership with the veteran midfielder.

"It's a bit of a change, playing in a 4-4-2, but we're both enjoying it because we work well together.

"He helps me a lot because he's the experienced lad so he gives me bits of advice.

"It's good to play with him."
