"The lads have been bright and bubbly but they have also worked incredibly hard"
John McGreal said the Town squad had a lengthy chat following Tuesday's performance away to Charlton Athletic, and are now fully focused on Saturday's meeting with Wigan.
The Blues head to the DW Stadium looking to bounce back from a disappointing display that saw them fall to a 2-0 defeat against The Addicks, while Leam Richardson's Wigan will be aiming to build on victory against Shrewsbury last time out.
"We debriefed after the game and had a really good chat about the performance," John told iFollow Ipswich.
"Then we got together and training has been vibrant. The lads have been bright and bubbly but they have also worked incredibly hard.
"I watched Wigan against Shrewsbury where they got a last-minute winner and we know it will be tough up there. They're performing very well and we have to arrive with a team that is ready to go, and we certainly have to improve on Tuesday night's performance.
"Everyone is looking for a reaction. The proof is in the pudding and we have to be better."
