Ipswich Town’s FA Cup opponents will wear a special kit at Portman Road

Ipswich Town’s FA Cup opponents have released a special kit for their visit to Portman Road later this month.

The Blues play Buxton in the second round, with the match scheduled for 5pm on Sunday 27 November.

The Bucks are currently 18th in the National League North table, heading into a game against an Ipswich side second in League One.

Buxton, whose assistant manager is former Ipswich midfielder Tommy Miller, usually wears dark blue at home with a pink away kit for this season, but has released a special white shirt to wear during the match at Portman Road.

And it’s available for fans to buy.

The non-league team beat Merthyr Town 2-0 to reach the second round, while Ipswich progressed thanks to a 3-0 win at Bracknell.

“It’s a good draw for us,” boss Kieran McKenna said of the game with Buxton.

“It’s good to have a safe home game. Of course, it’s another game where we’re big favourites. We have to deal with that responsibility and make sure we prepare well and do a good professional job.”

“It’s a good opportunity to go to the third round, which is something we really want to do.”
