IPSWICH Town's third round FA Cup foes face being thrown out of the competition after fielding an ineligible player in the 2-1 second-round replay victory over Chesterfield.

Non-league minnows Drolysden claimed a cup upset last night as a brace from defender Sean Newton booked his side a trip to Portman Road.

But it has now emerged that Newton should have been suspended for game after chalking up his fifth booking of the season on December 9.

An FA Cup committee will hear the case on December 29.
