Town’s warm-up schedule had been due to start tomorrow, but their unnamed opposition have pulled out of the tie for reasons beyond their control.

Paul Lambert’s men will instead get their friendly campaign underway against the U’s in a double header, at the Community Stadium, next Tuesday (Aug 18).

The evening will consist of two separate games lasting 75 minutes each (6pm and 8pm kos).

The Ipswich Town club website reads: “The video footage will be provided by Colchester’s match analyst team, with a much wider angle view than normally provided on iFollow and won’t be up to the standard of the iFollow coverage.

“Former Town midfielder and now head of media at Colchester, David Gregory, will be commentating and the streaming is priced at £5.00.”

Following the visit to Colchester, Ipswich look set to play away at Tottenham on Saturday, August 22. Three further games are possible, with at least one more against Premier League opposition in a match likely to be played at Portman Road.
