Wilson: “Everything to do with the football club was fine, I just didn’t see eye to eye with the manager"

James Wilson will be up against some familiar faces when Town take on Lincoln at Portman Road on Saturday.

The 30-year-old defender spent 18 months at Sincil Bank and helped the club win the League Two title last term before leaving in the summer.

“I met some great people there, in the dressing-room and behind the scenes as well,” said James in an interview in Saturday’s matchday programme.

“It was good to be part of the promotion but it was tough for me personally on occasions because I didn’t play as much as I thought I should have done. That did get to me.

Some of the lads there have been all the way through from their days in the Conference so there was a good feel about the place.

“I went back there with Ipswich this season and it was great to see so many of those people again.

“Everything to do with the football club was fine, I just didn’t see eye to eye with the manager [Danny Cowley].

“It was just so frustrating. There is nothing you can do about it though. It’s someone’s opinion at the end of the day. Football is all about opinions.”
