"We know they will be supporting us from the first minute but we have to give them something to cheer about with effort and endeavour"

Sam Morsy has heaped praise on Town's fans ahead of another bumper crowd backing the Blues this evening against Wycombe.

Around 26,000 supporters are expected at Portman Road for what is the second game of the #PackOutPR campaign, with just over 29,000 attending the 1-1 draw with Sunderland earlier this month.

Asked about the ongoing support, Town's skipper told the Club website: "It’s unbelievable, especially for a night game and with everything that is going on with Covid.

"They will be right behind the players and the manager. It was brilliant [against Sunderland].

"It just shows the potential of the Club. We know what the fans demand of us and we have to give it to them.

"We know they will be supporting us from the first minute but we have to give them something to cheer about with effort and endeavour."

As well as being Town's final game of 2021, tonight marks Kieran McKenna's first match in charge following Boxing Day's trip to Gillingham being postponed.

Sam believes that the week of training, as well as the recent peformances at Wigan earlier this month and against Sunderland last time out, stand the side in good stead ahead of the Chairboys' visit to Suffolk later today.

"It’s been a really positive week," the Blues' captain continued.

"Kieran has slowly been implementing how he wants us to play and what he wants his team to look like.

"It’s a very short period of time but he’s been very detailed in what he wants and what we need to take into the first game of the new regime against Wycombe. Everyone is still learning but I think it’s going to be a really exciting time for the Club.

"Against Wigan and Sunderland, two of the best teams in the division, we put in good performances. There was a really good intensity and we probably could have won both. That’s something we have to try and continue now to get on a run, but it needs to start now and we need to put points on the board.

"If we get a couple of wins back-to-back then it changes fast, but it’s one game at a time. Wycombe is going to be a really tough game, they’re one of the best teams in the division. They’re very physical with a strong team, manager and identity. They know what they are going to do but we’re preparing for that and looking forward to the game."
