It’s one of FGR’s longer journeys to Portman Road – just less than 200 miles and around 3 hours 35 minutes by road. This is the first time Rovers will have been to Ipswich. The return match in early August saw Ipswich win 2-1 in Nailsworth – a Josh March second half goal not enough to recover a 2-0 half time deficit.

By Car – Post Code for SAT NAV: IP1 2DA. The ground is close to the town centre, so free street parking is limited. There are 3 Pay and Display car-parks on Portman Road where 4 hours parking on a Saturday costs £4 and an NCP car-park by the railway station which is £2.70. Another option is one of the Park & Rides e.g the London Road Park & Ride (just off the A14/A12 junction). The cost is £2.50 and drops you a 5 minute walk from the ground (just follow the Ipswich fans doing the same thing!).
By Rail – rail ought normally to be an option for this trip. But the train companies are showing that there are rail replacement buses on all routes on this date. If you are going to be on a bus anyway, the Supporters Club coaches are quicker, more direct, and cheaper.
