SKIPPER LOOKS AT THE POSITIVES

27 March 2019

"There will be an opportunity for some new heroes to emerge and to get us up and going again" says Chambo

Luke Chambers points to Town’s emerging young players and the Blue Army as reasons why there is plenty to be positive about in the future at Portman Road.

The skipper accepts it’s going to take a huge shift for Blues to survive the drop into League One, with a 13 point gap to safety and Hull - at the weekend - the first of eight remaining games for the Club.

But speaking to the Club website, he said:  “Whatever happens over the next few weeks, I still think there is plenty to be positive about here.

“We’ve got some terrific young players coming through and that is one reason to be optimistic about what’s ahead. That part of the plan seems to be coming to fruition. With some good senior players around them, if we get the blend right, it will get the Club heading in the right direction again.

“It’s a massive ask for us to avoid dropping down a division but if we have to take a step backwards to go forwards, so be it.

“If that happens, there will be an opportunity for some new heroes to emerge and to get us up and going again.

“Whoever is here though, the Club will be fine. You only have to look at the supporters. Look at the amount of fans we're getting in when we are bottom of the league. That’s unreal. It tells you everything. Ipswich Town will be fine.”
