"Like everyone who has suffered because of coronavirus, I send all by best wishes to him, his friends and his family"
Paul Cook says he will be delighted to see Steve Cotterill at Montgomery Waters Meadow when Town take on Shrewsbury this evening.
The Salop manager (pictured above), who was discharged from hospital in March having recovered from Covid-19 and Covid-pneumonia, watched from the stands for his first game back when his side hosted Oxford at the weekend.
All being well, he could be in the dugout for their final two outings this term - the visit of Blues and a trip to face Crewe on Sunday.
"I know Steve and I'm absolutely delighted for him," Paul told the Club website.
"He's obviously been through a very tough time, but I'm sure he has had people rallying around him.
"He's a really good football guy - he absolutely loves it.
"Like everyone who has suffered because of coronavirus, I send all by best wishes to him, his friends and his family.
"If he's in the dugout then I'll be delighted to see him there."
Everyone associated with Ipswich Town is delighted that Steve has recovered and we echo Paul's warm words to the Shrewsbury boss.
Town's fixture with Salop kicks off at 7pm and is available to watch live on iFollow Ipswich.
