"With the work we have done in training and the way we have been set up, I am hopeful that I can help the team and get a few more goals"

James Norwood said Town must look to stifle Wigan this afternoon before implementing their authority on the game.

Blues travel to DW Stadium looking to return to winning ways and push closer to the play-off places, with The Latics third from bottom and two points from safety.

"We know it'll be tough. They're down there and they'll be scrapping for points," the Town striker, who has scored four goals in his last six games, told iFollow Ipswich.

"I think we need to look to stifle them and then look to apply our authority. We have to focus on ourselves.

"Personally I've been in good goal scoring form and of course I'm looking to continue that. I'm always confident I can score goals but it hasn't quite been the season I wanted in terms of game time and some injuries.

"With the work we have done in training, though, and the way we have been set up, I am hopeful that I can help the team and get a few more goals.

"I've had some problems with my back but I'm feeling good and it has settled down. You guys have seen how tough training has been this week but the gaffer wants to implement his style and that's great. He's made no secret that he wants us to score more goals and we've got to show we're good enough.

"We need to learn from last year because we were top and we crumbled. There is pressure from the fans and within the club and it's about what we can do with it. It's a big end to the season and a big game against Wigan."
