Ipswich Town have been allocated an extra 450 tickets for their trip to Essex rivals Southend later this month.

The Blues sold their initial allocation of 2,000 before tickets for the game - on October 26 - reached general sale, but have since worked closely with the Shrimpers and the relevant authorities to agree on an additional amount of away tickets for the clash at Roots Hall.

The extra tickets will go on sale at 10am on Thursday to current season ticket holders - that was the stage at which they previously sold out.

The Blues are expecting demand to be high and for all of the remaining tickets to sell within an hour of going on sale.
