"Every game in this league is going to be tough and they’re a good footballing side"

Aaron Drinan is determined to win his place in the side back after returning from injury at the weekend. 

The 22-year-old started Town's first three games of the season, impressing as the lone striker before a torn quadricep halted his run in the team.

Having come off the bench against Charlton last weekend, Aaron hopes that Tuesday's trip to Oxford will be his first of another run of fixtures leading the line.

"The first thing was to get on and get a couple of minutes," he told iFollow Ipswich. "The main aim is to get back in and stay in the starting XI for as long as I can.

"It was very frustrating. It was my first ever injury so it was tough to take at the time and tough to deal with but it’s just one of those things that you have to get on with.

"It’s good to see that I can pick up where I left off. I felt alright. I did a lot of work with Walshy [sports therapist Joe Walsh] doing top end sprinting. When it came to the game, there were no worries that anything was going to happen.

"Closing down defenders and running in behind - hitting those high speeds is a vital part of my game."

Blues travel to the Kassam Stadium off the back of successive home defeats against Hull and Charlton - with Aaron hoping that Town can get back on track.

"It was a long nine or ten weeks so to get back out there playing was a good feeling but obviously the result didn’t go our way [on Saturday]. We’ll be looking to put that right on Tuesday.

"It’s just another tough game. Every game in this league is going to be tough and they’re a good footballing side.

"The main thing is we need to get a win after the last two results. It’s all we can really go there for."
