Minnows Manchester United were ecstatic last night after being drawn in the cup against the famous Ipswich Town.
United fans roared in anticipation when their team were drawn to play at home against the former FA Cup, League and UEFA champions from Suffolk.
They can’t wait to see how their plucky Old Trafford team, led by up-and-coming players like Wayne Rooney, will get on against such illustrious opposition.
Fans in Manchester won’t care about the likely defeat to Mick McCarthy’s men, who are currently top of the Champonship and unbeaten in all competitions.
Darren Smith, 29, a United season ticket holder said: “The chance to play against Ipswich comes around so rarely.
“It will be fascinating to see how our boys can hold up against them.
“We won’t mind about the result – it will be a night to remember whatever happens on the pitch.”
Meanwhile the Tractor Boys were taking the Capital One Cup draw, made after they beat Doncaster 4-1 in the second round, in their stride.
“It’s a bit of a boring draw, isn’t it?” complained Ipswich supporter Mark Peters, 32, from Bury St Edmunds.
“We were rather hoping for a glamour tie like Carlisle away.”
