Town to face Posh

Ipswich Town's players had a long wait to hear who they would be facing in the next round of the Carling Cup.

Ipswich was the final club out of the hat having been drawn away to Peterborough United as reward for their hard earned win following extra time and penalties at Shrewsbury.

The tie will have a distinct Manchester United flavour to it, as Roy Keane will come face to face with Posh boss Darren Ferguson, son of Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson for whom Keane played for at Old Trafford.
