“As players we have to stand up and be counted. There is no hiding place," says Chambo ahead of crunch week

Luke Chambers says it’s make or break time for Town now ahead of two home games in quick succession against rivals for promotion.

Blues are five points adrift of the Play-Offs ahead of tonight’s game against Fleetwood, who will move into the top six themselves if they win at Portman Road.

League One leaders Coventry are at Town at the weekend and the skipper acknowledges the importance of the next five days.    

“I’m doing this column because it’s my responsibility as skipper but to be honest, I’m fed up talking about what we should be doing on the pitch. We have to go out there and just do it,” writes Chambo in his column in tonight’s matchday programme.

“One look at the table tells you it’s do or die time now for us this season and if we don’t want to be in this league for another year, we have to start delivering - not talking about delivering.

“As players we have to stand up and be counted. We are at a stage in the season now where it can be make or break for players’ careers. There is no hiding place.

“There is pressure on every game but we can’t hide the fact that it’s been magnified now given what’s at stake. But then if you can’t handle the pressure here, you shouldn’t be playing professional football.”

The skipper is as straight-talking as ever. Read the full column in the matchday programme.
