Boro travel to Portman Road for the second time in 368 days, looking to get their first win of the season after Saturday's defeat to Crewe.


Last season’s EFL Cup First Round tie ended in a 2-1 defeat despite taking the lead before half-time through a Christophe Berra own goal. You can watch the highlights below...



Charlie Lee believes that tomorrow’s game is a good opportunity to right the wrongs of Saturday’s defeat.


“We have got to bounce back as soon as possible.


“Obviously it is going to be a massive test for us. They are a big team and they will have a good go in the Championship this year.


“I think it is a good game for us. No-one will really expect too much from us but we can go out there and maybe try some more things that we did in pre-season that we didn’t against Crewe." 


It is believed there are no fresh injury concerns for Darren Sarll so he should have a strong squad to choose from. Mick McCarthy has already named his starting line-up ahead of the game and will make seven changes from their win at the weekend.
