Ipswich Town have warned they "will not tolerate any form of offensive or anti-social behaviour" after a group of fans allegedly directed racist chants at Luton Town supporters in the recent EFL Cup meeting between the sides.

A small group of Town fans are alleged to have sung the songs during the match at Kenilworth Road on Tuesday evening which Luton won 3-1.

As of yet, the Hatters are yet to report the remarks to the authorities, but Ipswich have said that any form of discrimination is not welcome at their club.

"The facts confirm that our supporters are among the best behaved in the country and have been for many years,” Town secretary Stuart Hayton said.

“That said, we have been informed of alleged racist chants made by a small number of our fans at Kenilworth Road and we are working with Luton on what is an ongoing matter.

“We have shown in the past that we will act strongly against anyone found to have conducted themselves in an offensive or anti-social manner both at games and with comments on social media and that will remain the club’s policy.”
