IPSWICH Town and Scunthorpe United supporters will be throwing pointed missiles against each other today.
But this does not mean that there will be general warfare at Portman Road - far from it.
Both clubs have sides in the London branch football supporters' darts league, and they will be competing for the Humber-Orwell trophy at the Milestone, Woodbridge Road, Ipswich starting at 5.30pm.
