PREVIEW: NORWICH V TOWN

28 February 2015

Luke Chambers admits Town are ready to go to battle with our East Anglian rivals at Carrow Road

Luke Chambers has declared that Town are ‘ready’ for tomorrow’s crunch East Anglian derby with Norwich City.

Town take on the Canaries at Carrow Road, kick-off 2.05pm, with both sides in hot pursuit of an automatic promotion place in the Championship.

“We’re all looking forward to the game and we know we’ll be taking our usual mad bunch down there!” The Town skipper told the official Club website.

“The fans have been brilliant this season and we know they will be again at Norwich in what will be an electric atmosphere.

“We’re ready. We’ve trained well and we want to get out there. At the end of the day, it’s another potential three points for us but we all know just how important these games are to the fans.

“I don’t think we were at our best when we played earlier in the season and it would be nice to put that defeat right.

“We’re looking forward to getting out there and hopefully it will be us celebrating come 4pm. A lot of people have told me they want to see my fist-pump at Carrow Road and it would be extra sweet to do it there.

“But at the end of the day, it’s another three points for us and the bigger picture is trying to earn promotion, which hopefully we can do.”

Live commentary from Carrow Road will be available on Ipswich Player from 2pm, with live updates and build-up via the Ipswich Wall. Follow our social media channels for team news and behind-the-scenes content.
