Ipswich Town suffered Carling Cup heartache after losing 3-0 at Arsenal tonight, in their semi-final second leg.

The Blues battled heroically to protect their slender one-goal lead from the first leg at Portman Road.

But an opener on the hour-mark from Nicklas Bendtner was quickly followed by a second from Laurent Koscielny.

And the writing was on the wall when Cesc Fabregas slotted a late third past goalkeeper Marton Fulop.
