The match

Former winners Ipswich Town host Buxton in the second round of the FA Cup. The home side are second in League One, while Buxton are 18th in the National League North. It was in 1978 when Ipswich won the FA Cup. They are currently spending their fourth season in League One but are in the automatic promotion places. Ipswich were top of the table but dropped to second after being held to a draw by Cheltenham Town and are now two points behind new leaders Plymouth. They also lost to Derby in midweek in an English FootballTrophy tie. That defeat ended a run of six games without defeat. Home form is good with two losses in their last 11 matches. They haven't reached the third round of the FA Cup since the 2018/19 season. Ipswich also faced non-league opposition in the first round proper of this season's FA Cup, winning 3-0 at Bracknell Town. Their last 10 FA Cup home games have failed to produce a win, though six have been drawn. Their last FA Cup home victory was 13 years ago but they'll be confident of ending that poor run this weekend.

Buxton are three divisions below their opponents. They are currently 18th in National League North, four points clear of the relegation zone but with a couple of games in hand on most teams. They have lost their last three games with nine goals conceded. Buxton have won their last three away league games but lost 4-2 at Blyth Spartans (below them in the National League North) in the FA Trophy last weekend. This is their second successive season in the second round of the FA Cup. They've only reached the third round once and that was in the 1951/52 season. This season has seen them win four games to get this far but three have been at home. In the first round they beat Methyr Town 2-0 at home. Back Ipswich to win this and be ahead at both half and full time.
