Former Town and Forest favourite Paul Anderson spoke to the matchday programme ahead of the weekend clash at Portman Road
There will be an interested spectator looking on from afar at Saturday’s clash between Town and Forest at Portman Road.
Former winger Paul Anderson, who left Town in the summer after his contract expired to join Bradford City, turned out for both the Blues and the Reds and has fond memories at his time with both clubs.
The 27 year-old- currently recovering from a broken leg he suffered whilst playing for the Bantams- was in contact with us recently for an article for the matchday programme and offered his views on the weekend’s encounter.
“I’ll certainly be looking at the result, because it’s two clubs that mean a lot to me,” Ando told the official matchday programme ahead of the clash.
“I think they are two clubs- with the fanbase and their histories- that belong in the Premier League. Obviously you don’t have a god forgiven right to be in the top flight, but both Forest and Ipswich would be good additions to the Premier League.
“Forest will be a tough test for Ipswich. Dougie Freedman is doing a good job there under the circumstances [embargo] and it should make for an entertaining game.

The midfielder, who ended his Town career with a goal against Norwich in his final Portman Road outing, had a message to the Blue Army for the support they’ve showed him both during his time with the Blues and since he’s moved on.
“I just wanted to say thank you really, for all the support shown to me- especially when I broke my leg at Bradford,” he added.
“I had lots of messages from Ipswich fans which was really nice and shows just what a great bunch they are.
“Everybody at the Club- the people behind-the-scenes too- really are great people and they work very hard, so I just want to wish everybody connected to Ipswich Town all the best going forward.”
