Skipper expecting tough test against Black Cats but determined to re-establish Blues' solid away record

Luke Chambers thinks Town will be in for a tough test at the Stadium of Light tomorrow.

Blues face Sunderland aiming to bounce back from successive defeats, but Paul Lambert's side do boast an impressive record on the road this season.

Town have won eight and drawn four of their 16 league games away from Portman Road this term.

"We know what we can do and we need to apply it for 90 minutes," the Blues captain told iFollow Ipswich.

"It's not an encounter that we fear [Sunderland], it's one we're looking forward to. We've had a week to reflect on the loss against Peterborough and we need to see this as an opportunity.

"If there wasn't doom and gloom after a 4-1 defeat at home to promotion rivals I'd be a bit worried, but it's done now and we need to move on.

"Sunderland will be a tough game. They're on quite a good run at the moment and have a manager that knows how to get out of this division but we will aim for a solid start and try to swing the momentum in our favour."
