IPSWICH will take on giant-killing Swansea City if they can beat Chester City in their FA Cup replay next Tuesday.

The Swans knocked out Sheffield United in the third round of the FA Cup (sponsored by e.on) and will probably be disappointed at being drawn away after their 3-0 win at Bramall Lane.

The two sides have never met in the FA Cup before but Town knocked them out of the League Cup, back in 1961 in the second round, and have beaten the Welsh side six of the 10 times they have played them at Portman Road.

Magilton warned that Ipswich still have to beat Chester before thinking about Kenny Jackett's side.

He said: “Swansea is a long way off at the moment. Although getting a home draw is welcome, Chester is our first concern. They gave us plenty of problems on Saturday and we're just happy to still be in the competition.
