Ipswich Town begin their FA Cup campaign against Sheffield United at Portman Road this afternoon (3pm).

The Blues are without an FA Cup win since the 2009/10 season, when they beat Blackpool in the third round before losing to Southampton, and are looking to put that record right.

Manager Mick McCarthy is without close to 20 players through injury, suspension and unavailability and has already dropped some hints regarding his team for this afternoon’s clash.

Bartosz Bialkowski and Luke Hyam will both start, with new Irish signing Aaron Drinan likely to make his debut off the bench.

Stick with us for all the action and reaction from Portman Road.
