Ipswich Town and Sunderland played out a 1-1 draw at Portman Road this afternoon.

It's a big day at Portman Road, with more than 28,000 tickets sold thanks to the 'Pack our PR' campaign which has been running in recent weeks.

The game is also the first time club owners Berke Bakay and Mark Detmer have been able to visit the club they helped buy back in April, though fellow owners Brett Johnson, Mark Steed and Ed Schwartz have not been able to make the trip due to the ongoing situation with Covid-19.

On top of that, today will also see the club's new manager, Kieran McKenna, watch on from the stands ahead of starting work on Monday morning.

John McGreal, Rene Gilmartin and Kieron Dyer will lead the team against the Black Cats this afternoon.
