Ipswich Town to travel to Colchester United and host Millwall as part of pre-season fixtures




An early reunion with Cole Skuse and a belated one with goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski is on the cards after Ipswich Town confirmed they will play Colchester United and Millwall in pre-season.

Paul Cook's squad will travel to Colchester's JobServe Community Stadium on Tuesday, July 27 to take part in two 75-minute matches – like last season – with the first kicking off at 5.30pm and then second at 7.45pm.

It is set to see them go up against recently departed long-serving midfielder Skuse, who joined the League Two U's last month.
