The on-loan Albion goalkeeper was cleared to play for the Tractor Boys.

Walton would love to go on the sort of run he enjoyed with Wigan, which included a win over Manchester City.

He said: “It gave us a big backlog of games in League One but the momentum was unbelievable.

“The buzz around the club was brilliant as big teams came to the stadium, It was electric.

“If we can do that here, then great. We drew with Fylde in the first round and then won the replay.

“The momentum was there, right through the club, and it’s a great feeling when you are in the middle of a cup run.”

Walton played in the FA Cup for Albion last season.

His time with the Seagulls appears to be coming to an end but he has regained his place in the Tractor Boys’ side in the league.

Walton has played in the last five league and cup games.

He appears to be making a big impression after a start to the season which was hindered by injury.

When he came into the side, it was just in time for a horror show in front of him as Ipswich crashed lost 5-2 at home to Bolton.


He was then back out of the side for five weeks.

Ipswich won 4-0 at Portsmouth on his return to action and he has remained in the side since then.

He dived to his right to save Dylan Bahamboula’s penalty.

Walton said: “It’s a nice feeling to save a penalty and obviously I’m delighted to have kept us in it.

“I’ve done my job and if I can come up with that in big moments then I know I’m doing something right.

“Hopefully I can keep doing that for the team.”

Ipswich boss Paul Cook was disappointed with his side - and grateful to his goalkeeper.

Cook said: “Unfortunately for us, we relied on a great penalty save from Christian Walton to keep us in the hat.”
