Blues looking good ahead of pre-season friendlies says midfielder

Cole Skuse says that Town are in 'fantastic shape' ahead of their first pre-season friendlies.

Blues travel to Colchester on Tuesday evening for a double-header of behind closed doors 75-minute games in what will be their first competitive action since March.

Having now commenced contact training after initially returning in small groups, the midfielder has been full of praise for his team-mates.

He told iFollow Ipswich: "Throughout Covid you can do road running or your own ball work, but you can't quite replicate what you do in a proper training session. 

"We came back in the small bubbles originally. In terms of building up to the contact, that's been good because the games have been at a really good tempo.

"To go from doing your running and stuff at home, to then doing your bubble work but at a distance - the lads have come back in fantastic shape.

"You need to transfer that into the contact stuff and the certain movements that you have on a football pitch - the lads have been brilliant."

Colchester are providing a streaming service for fans of both clubs to watch the matches, priced at £5 for both games with Town recieving 50 per cent of the revenue generated by Blues supporters.

The footage will be provided by Colchester's analyst team with a much wider angle than normally provided on iFollow. 

The streaming service can be accessed here.
