Ipswich Town ended their pre-season programme with a 3-0 home defeat to Championship side Millwall yesterday.

Benik Afobe scored twice and Jed Wallace added the third on an afternoon where Town manager Paul Cook admitted his side found things difficult against Gary Rowett's men.

The game saw new signing Conor Chaplin make his first appearance in an Ipswich shirt, playing the final 20 minutes from the bench, while fellow new boy George Edmundson missed out with a minor knock.

In the Millwall goal was former Blue Bartosz Bialkowski, who was returning to the club where he won a hat-trick of player-of-the-year awards before departing in the wake of relegation.

Photographer Stephen Waller was on hand to capture the best of the action.
