Skipper delighted with win over MK Dons and feels he is adapting to his more attacking role
Luke Chambers believes he’s now adapting to playing at right-back and is comfortable at getting forward from that position as well as defending from it.
The skipper trapped a Jonathan Douglas pass before whipping the ball onto Brett Pitman’s head for the only goal in the 1-0 victory over MK Dons and feels as if all his training in that position is now beginning to bear fruit.
“Of late, even in training I’ve sort of found a new lease of life getting forward so I’m trying to get myself involved more,” he told Ipswich Player HD after the game.
“I’ve made no secret where I want to play but I’m trying my best for the football club; for the boys in the dressing room; for the manager and everyone else.
“I want to be one of the best right-backs in the league and I know at times I’m going to come up against wingers like I did at MK Dons that are going to cause me problems but it’s about me learning and trying to nullify that.
“I’m trying to do my best and trying to improve. I’m not satisfied being a centre-back playing at right-back; I want to be a right-back in my own right and be one of the best in the league.
“I know that’s probably a long way off but we’re always looking to improve as a team and I think we’re doing that week by week.”
