“When you get that run of games, you can’t ask for anymore from a manager"
Flynn Downes says the trust he has from Paul Lambert is helping him develop as a player at Portman Road.
The 20-year-old was handed the captaincy in Blues’ FA Cup draw with Coventry at the weekend and while he acknowledges he still has a long way to go, he says the game is beginning to become more instinctive for him.
“It’s helping me massively playing games every week. I feel like I’m improving all the time,” Flynn told the Club website.
“When you know your gaffer trusts you to do a job and you get that run of games, you can’t ask for anymore from a manager.
“There is still a lot I’ve got to work on but that comes with experience and playing games.
“If I had not played the games I had and learnt about the game, then I’d probably have to think a lot more about the positions I should be taking up, the decisions I should make. It is becoming a bit more instinctive now.”
