Smith insists Town must 'get back to basics' as the Blues look to return to winning ways with victory over Huddersfield at Portman Road

Tommy Smith has said Town must get ‘back to doing what they do best’ as the Blues look to return to winning ways against Huddersfield this weekend. 

Football returns to Portman Road following the international break, with Mick McCarthy’s men looking to end a three-League game winless run with victory against the Terriers. 

Now the defender insists Town must go back to playing to their strengths, as they were at the beginning of the season. 

“It’s down to us to get back to what we do best. We’ve not had a great month so the international break has probably come at a good time,” the New Zealand international explained to the Club website. 

“It has given us the chance to have a look at what we are doing differently now to the start of the season.    

“The gaffer has spoken to us individually and as a group and we have talked about the things that will get us back to winning football matches. 

“It’s about hard work on the training ground and on the pitch, becoming difficult to beat again. It’s about playing in the right areas and taking risks in the right areas. 

“We have got a good squad and we have the players to break down the opposition but just lately, there have been too many goals conceded that could have been prevented and we have to put that right.

A full and exclusive interview with the 25 year-old can be read in Saturday's matchday programme, priced at just £3 and available at kiosks around the ground.
