Striker pays tribute to former club but says "I love to win, no matter who it's against"

James Norwood thanked his former club Tranmere for 'reinvigorating his football career' but emphasised that there is only one thing on his mind when Town face Rovers at Portman Road this weekend - three points for Blues.

The striker spent four years at Prenton Park and scored 82 league goals en route to back-to-back promotions with The Whites and said he has a lot to be grateful for following his time on Merseyside.

"My time there was fantastic and I have a lot of love for the club," James told iFollow Ipswich.

"They reinvigorated my football career and gave me a real good shot at having a long and successful career. I'm very grateful for that.

"I trained and played with lads there for up to four years so I know them well and will need to bring something different to my game at the weekend. It's a challenge I'll embrace.

"But it's one I'm used to because once Saturday passes I'll have played against every team I used to play for. It's nice to be received well by the fans but I'm there to do a job.

"I love to win, no matter who it's against. I'm an Ipswich Town player now and the only thing I really want is three points."
