Fans will be able to watch Ipswich Town’s FA Cup clash with Portsmouth free of charge this weekend.

The two former winners of the famous old trophy - Town in 1978 and Pompey in 1939 and 2008 - meet in round one at Portman Road on Saturday as they begin their campaign.

The clash will be screened live by the BBC, with viewers able to watch through iPlayer and also through BBC Sport and its accompanying app.

That means the match will not be screened by iFollow, as is usually the case with behind-closed-doors games.

The BBC stream will include multi-camera coverage as well as commentary, with former Town captain Matt Holland part of the team.

You can watch via the BBC Sport website, here.
