Midfielder relishing Norwich test as he looks to Town's Barmy Army to turn up the volume

Cole Skuse is relishing the biggest game of his life when Town take on Norwich in the Play-Offs semi-final second-leg on Saturday. 

The 29-year-old midfielder is expecting another fantastic atmosphere at Carrow Road following the 1-1 draw on Town soil last weekend with a place at Wembley at stake.

“It’s the biggest game of my career and I’m looking forward to it. We all are,”  Cole told the Club website. 

“It was a fantastic atmosphere at Portman Road last week. There was a moment after we scored and we got a corner and a massive roar went up and it took me back a bit. I’ve not experienced that before. 

“The game last week had something extra over the two league meetings we’ve had. There was that extra spice to the occasion. I’m sure it will be the same on Saturday. They will have their fans right behind them but we will have our own Barmy Army and they will be making plenty of noise. 

“Norwich will be favourites and the pressure will be on them. They were favourites before we kicked off last weekend and their fans will be expecting them to beat us again but we’re confident we can go there and get the result we need. 

“There is a massive prize at stake for the winner. If I was offered automatic promotion at the start of the season, I obviously would have taken it but the next best thing is to go up via the Play-Offs at Wembley in front of a big crowd and millions watching on TV and we have a chance of doing that.”
