Carabao Cup upsets: Could Ipswich Town suffer a shock defeat this evening?

Published

Tonight marks the beginning of the Carabao Cup, and a plethora of fixtures take place across the country as side’s from the lower reaches of the Football League look to gain some much needed exposure with shock results over their colleagues at a higher level.

Cup competitions have thrown up unbelievable surprises over the years, with the latest being then non-league Lincoln City’s remarkable run to the quarter finals of the FA Cup before being beaten by eventual winners Arsenal.

Upsets could be on the cards again this evening, and one Championship side that stand out with an extremely difficult test are Ipswich Town.

The Tractor Boys travel to a Luton Town side entering the game on the back of an 8-2 mauling of Yeovil Town, and confidence is high at Kenilworth Road that the Hatters can spring a surprise this evening.

Mick McCarthy’s men started their season in fantastic fashion with a hard fought win over Birmingham at Portman Road, and McCarthy may look to field a strong squad again to ensure the continuation of his side’s early season momentum.

The former Ireland boss came under a lot of criticism from his own fans last year when his side were dumped out of the FA Cup by Lincoln, and will look to appease the fans with a cup run of their own this semester.

Luton boss Nathan Jones is also likely to field a strong side, and this game could go to the wire.

Both side’s will be keen to continue their winning starts, and this tie has the potential to be one of the most hard fought of the round.

Can the Hatters pull off a shock tonight?
