Ipswich Town and Colchester United drew 3-3 in their pre-season friendly this evening.

In what is the penultimate pre-season game for Paul Cook's side, the Ipswich boss will be looking to get more vital minutes into his players' legs as they prepare for the start of the competitive campaign.

In opposition tonight is a team packed with players needing little introduction, due to their Ipswich Town pasts.

Chief among them are former captain and top-10 all-time appearance-maker Luke Chambers and long-serving midfielder Cole Skuse, who both signed for the U's this summer along with Freddie Sears and Alan Judge. 

Also at Colchester are former Ipswich players Tommy Smith - the new Colchester captain - Frank Nouble, Dean Gerken and Tom Eastman.
