The Ipswich Town vs Maidstone United live stream sees the last non-league side left in the FA Cup travel to Portman Road today as they look to keep their dream run alive against a side chasing promotion to the Premier League — and you can watch it from anywhere with a VPN.
On paper, there should only be one winner in this game. Ipswich Town have lost just one of their last 12 matches and currently sit second in the Championship. Maidstone, meanwhile, sit fifth in the National League South and have lost their last two matches.
However, the FA Cup is known for shocks and The Stones have already upset the odds by beating League Two side Barrow and League One play-off hopefuls Stevenage. Can the fairytale continue?
Ipswich have been superb under Kieran McKenna all season and fought back against runaway Championship leaders Leicester to earn a point earlier in the week. While it was an important result, the 1978 FA Cup winners have now drawn five of their last seven league games.
Here’s how they line up:
Ipswich Town: Walton; Ball, Tuanzebe, Edmundson, Humphreys; Taylor, Morsy; Hutchinson, Aluko, Sarmiento; Broadhead
Subs: Slicker, Clarke, Woolfenden, Davis, Burns, Travis, Harness, Chaplin, Buabo
Maidstone United: Covolan, Hoyte, Fowler, Appiah, Kyprianou, Berkeley-Agyepong, Corne, Reynolds, Bone, Duku, Sole
Subs: Greenidge, Earle, Ezennolim, Court, Smith, Gurung, Iandolo
