"My beliefs are that the team will integrate soon, they will get better and that the results will go in a really positive direction"
Paul Cook says that Town are working hard to mould a group of individuals into an established team.
The Blues travel to Lincoln City tomorrow in search of their first win of the 2021/22 season.
Town's boss was full of praise for the man in the home dugout at LNER Stadium, Michael Appleton, but insists that the focus remains on bringing together the new squad at his own disposal.
"Michael’s a good manager," Paul told iFollow Ipswich. "He’s done a great job at Lincoln; a good style of play, good identity, plenty of pace and energy in the team. They will commit men forward to score goals and will test us.
"I’m not being disrespectful to Lincoln but it’s nearly irrelevant who we’re playing at the minute because we are not a team yet. We just play as a group of individuals that have been put together.
"The messages from training must go onto the pitch, then when we are on the pitch, we must do better. The newness in the team is there for all to see. My beliefs are that the team will integrate soon, they will get better and that the results will go in a really positive direction that will get us where we want to be."
