"I’ll always try and run the channels and help where I can"

Aaron Drinan says that there is more to being a striker than finding the back of the net - but admits he is hoping to get on the scoresheet for Blues soon.

The Irish forward turned out against Bristol Rovers last weekend and Arsenal U21s midweek, and went close to scoring in both matches but was denied by an impressive save against the Gas and the woodwork against the young Gunners.

"Goals will come if you keep believing that you’ll score," he told iFollow Ipswich.

"First and foremost I’m delighted to have made my debut and be in the team. I think I’ve done well.

"I’ve been told by the gaffer that I need to hold on to the ball and bring other players into the game. It takes pressure off the back four and helps the team move up the pitch.

"You need to do more in the role than just go for goal. I’ll always try and run the channels and help where I can."

Freddie Sears and Alan Judge have been playing either side of Aaron in the last two games, and the 22-year-old spoke about their influence on the attack.

"I think we’ve all done well," he added.

"Freddie has scored and I got the assist, and Judgey has also recorded an assist. Let’s hope we keep the momentum going."
