Ipswich Town lost 1-0 to Crystal Palace this afternoon.

Today's game marks the return of supporters to Portman Road, with a crowd of more than 6,000 expected for the Premier League side's visit.

The match will also see Town's pre-season preparations step up a gear, following a 1-0 victory at Dartford and then a 2-1 loss in a training game at Fulham.

Joe Pigott and Scott Fraser could make their first appearances this afternoon, while the majority of fans in the ground will be seeing Town's eight new signings in action for the first time.
