MATCH PREVIEW: WIGAN V TOWN

22 September 2014

Tabb looking for Blues to continue winning streak at the DW following impressive week at home

Jay Tabb is looking for Town to ‘continue the winning momentum’, as Blues make the trip north to Wigan this evening.

After claiming a maximum six points out of six last week following back-to-back home wins, Jay had explained that the dressing-room is hoping for a repeat performance on the road tonight.

“The two home wins last week provided a huge boost for us points-wise and I think if you look back now, it’s been a solid start to the season,” the midfielder told Ipswich Player.

“Our performances have been pretty good and we are sitting just outside the play-offs. Hopefully we can kick on now and go on a bit of a run.

“Wigan will be another tough game, especially away from home, but the lads are full of confidence and ready to try and keep this winning run going.”

Story last season

Town put in one of their best away performances of the season the last time we visited the DW Stadium, however the result didn’t match the efforts as we departed the North West with nothing to show. A goal in each half from Premier League loanees Ryan Shotton and Nick Powell- the latter’s coming in injury time on a counter from a Town corner- winning the tie for the Latics.

The Republic of Ireland international first moved into English football with Wigan, for £600,000 in 2011. After one season with the Latcis, Conor moved to Derby for £1.2m and has featured 83 times for the Rams. Was allowed to team up with Town earlier this season and made his debut as a substitute against Reading.
