Luke satisfied with 45 at Abbey Stadium and itching for season to start

Luke Garbutt said he was pleased to get more minutes under his belt as Town drew 0-0 with Cambridge United in their final pre-season fixture at the Abbey Stadium.

The Everton loanee was introduced to the action at half-time and is now raring to go as Blues kick-off the regular season away to Burton Albion next Saturday.

"I think we played some good stuff today, particularly in the second half, and it was good to be involved," Luke told iFollow Ipswich.

"We were a bit slow to get going but we start the season next weekend so you don't want to take too many risks. I was pleased to get another 45 minutes in the bank.

"I came into pre-season a little bit later but the lads have welcomed me brilliantly and I feel like it's been good for me and the team. I'm itching to go now.

"The fans were brilliant today as well, and I'm looking forward to seeing them in full voice at Burton."
