Town enter the new campaign following a pre-season which included two victories over Colchester as well as losses to Tottenham, West Ham and Cambridge.

It remains to be seen just how seriously Paul Lambert takes today’s game, though the boss did say: “We will be picking a strong team and we want to go through to the next round.”

Following today’s game, Arsenal’s Under 21s visit on Tuesday in the EFL Trophy before the real business starts with a league clash against Wigan next Saturday.
