El Mizouni hoping to catch manager's eye in Gills test
Idris El Mizouni is relishing the chance to catch the eye of Town boss Paul Lambert in tonight’s leasing.com Trophy game against Gillingham.
The 19-year-old midfielder played in the 2-1 win over Tottenham U21s in the first group game and is hoping to be involved at Portman Road tonight.
“Games like the Tottenham one and tonight are opportunities for us to express ourselves and show the manager what we can do,” Idris told the matchday programme for tonight’s game.
“We know the league is the priority but this is a proper first-team game. That is how the match against Tottenham was treated and it will be the same tonight.
“The manager has said he is going to give players an opportunity and change the team around and it’s down to the players coming in to impress him.”
