Skipper leads the rallying call as Town look to secure Play-Off place but insists the Blues must 'finish the job off' first

Luke Chambers has spoken of his desire to reach the top flight with Ipswich Town and has called on the fans to continue their backing in this weekend’s huge game against Nottingham Forest.

The Town skipper admits the lads are ready for action, with another big backing at Portman Road expected, but also insists that the Blues must ‘finish the job off’ before even thinking about the Play-Offs.

“We all want to realise our dreams of playing in the Premier League,” Luke wrote in his matchday programme notes.  

“That’s where everybody wants to be and I’m no different. I’m approaching 30 now and I know my best chance is making it with Ipswich. That’s what I want and nothing would make me prouder.

“It’s something I dream about but listen, there’s still a hell of a long way to go yet and we’ve got a very difficult game against Nottingham Forest to get through yet, before then facing Blackburn on the final day.

“Then we can start looking at the Play-Offs, should we make it that far.

“All I will say is that there’s nobody who will want to be in those end of season Play-Offs more than the lads in this dressing-room, that’s how hungry we are as a team to be successful together at this Club.

“We need the fans, of course, and I urge them to continue their fine backing right until the end. It’s a big game and we need them to remain patient, get behind us and stay positive.

“We have to stick together no matter what and hopefully we can all be celebrating together come 5pm.”
