Ipswich Town to play Capital One Cup match against Bristol Rovers in midweek

IPSWICH Town will start their competitive 2012/13 season with a Capital One Cup match on Tuesday, August 14.

Paul Jewell’s men will face Bristol Rovers for the midweek cup match at Portman Road after initial thoughts that the game could be played on a Saturday afternoon – seven days before the Championship season started – came to nothing.

The match in the former Carling Cup will come six days after Town’s final pre-season friendly at Colchester United before Town start the season with another home game at newly-promoted Blackburn Rovers on the weekend of August 18.
