Ipswich Town’s trip to Rochdale on Saturday, September 7, has been postponed.

The match, which has been moved because of Town's international call-ups, will now be played on Tuesday, November 5 with kick-off at 7.45pm.

While League One and Two games will go ahead as normal on the weekend of September 7/8 - designated as an 'international week' - Town have reached the three player call-up tipping point and the club have taken up the option to postpone the game under EFL rules.
