"You’ve got two teams who both want to play with a certain style and are both intent on trying to win"

Paul Cook expects tomorrow's home fixture against Sheffield Wednesday to be an entertaining affair. 

Town host the Owls at Portman Road looking to make it successive victories in League One.

Wednesday were the early pace-setters after picking up 10 points from their opening four games but are winless in their last three outings. 

Town's boss says that his side will have to overcome a 'very strong' opponent to claim the three points tomorrow afternoon.

"It’ll be a massive test," he told iFollow Ipswich. "I think it should be a really good game. You’ve got two teams who both want to play with a certain style and are both intent on trying to win.

"Momentum is only built by winning games. To do that tomorrow, we’re going to have to beat an opponent that is very strong and capable. They’ve got a lot of good players just like ourselves.

"Let’s hope every fan leaves the stadium having watched a really good game with two teams who could go on and do well this season."

The meeting of Town and Wednesday, two clubs who have both been crowned champions of England and lifted the FA Cup previously, will be played in front of over 20,000 fans at Portman Road.

Paul expects both sides to be aiming for nothing less than the victory tomorrow afternoon.

"Darren [Moore] has taken over a massive club, no different to ourselves," he continued.

"It’s a great honour to manage these clubs. Sheffield Wednesday will turn up and, like all big clubs do, expect to win.

"He’s got good players in the team and he’s clearly got a good identity in the team.

"Both clubs are steeped in history and tradition, and both clubs don’t want to be in League One. That probably applies to a number of other clubs in the division as well."
