No specific limits on what can be achieved says Paul

Paul Hurst says there is no "definitive answer" on what he's looking to achieve in his first season as Town manager.

Blues begin their Championship campaign at home to Blackburn Rovers on Saturday, and the former Shrewsbury boss is determined to set the trend for the rest of the term.

"I keep getting asked what would be a successful season and I’ll be honest I don’t have a definitive answer," Paul told iFollow Ipswich.

"I know I want a group of players to represent this Football Club well, to get people talking about us and to really create an identity. That’s important but at the same time we all know we need to get results.

"Beating the local rivals would be something I’d really like. The fans have been on the wrong side of the bragging rights for some time, certainly in head-to-head games, so it would be nice to change that.

"But overall we want to finish as high up the table as possible. I genuinely don’t know where that will be, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

"I don't think we should put any limits on what we can achieve as long as we’re realistic along the way.

"At the end of the day we're in this business to win games and I want that to start this weekend."
