This game is sure to be a more testing one.
Two new signings were in the Swaffham starting line-up against Ipswich- Nigel Julien and the returning Ricky Muggleton, who had a brief spell with the Pedlars at the end of last season.
Both made their mark on the game. Julien opened his goal account in the 27th minute following a goalmouth scramble.
Shortly before half-time Ipswich were awarded a penalty following a clumsy challenge by Scott Voutt on the edge of the Swaffham area.
The penalty was pushed around the post by keeper David Potter.
