Ipswich Town fans who missed out on tickets to this weekend’s much-anticipated trip to the Essex coast for a clash with Southend will be able to watch the game live at Portman Road via a TV link.

Saturday's clash at Roots Hall saw Town's original 2,000 ticket allocation sell out in under an hour, with an additional 450 tickets also selling out within minutes when they went on sale last week.

So, with a huge number of fans not able to make the trip, the Blues have sought and secured permission to show the match live on TV screens back at Portman Road.

The club will be hosting the beamback in the Sir Bobby Robson Suite and Beattie's, with tickets priced at £10 for all adults and £5 for U16s. Bar facilities will be available.
