The Blues and Sky Blues will have to do it all again following their 1-1 draw in the original staging of the tie on Sunday, with Callum O'Hare scoring in the 94th minute to cancel out Will Keane's opener.

The Portman Road replay will now be played on Tuesday, December 10, just three days after the two sides have met in a League One clash at St Andrew's on Saturday.

Tickets are priced at adults £10; senior 65+ and Under 23s £5 and U19s £2. The lower tiers in the Sir Alf Ramsey and Sir Bobby Robson stands will be open for the game as well as all tiers in the Co-Op Stand.

The winners will travel to either Plymouth Argyle or Bristol Rovers in round three, with those two sides playing their replay on the same evening.

The Coventry replay will complete a run of six-successive midweek games for the Blues.

Paul Lambert's side still have two games with dates yet-to-be-arranged, away at Oxford United and at home to Fleetwood Town. The latter was due to be played on FA Cup third round day, January 4, but will be postponed regardless of Ipswich's progression in the competition due to the fact Fleetwood have already secured their position in round three.
