"We have to manage the game as well as we can and try to win our individual battles, and then hopefully show our quality"
Sone Aluko said the group is feeling well prepared for tomorrow's clash with Gillingham, having not been in action since a home meeting with Wycombe 10 days ago.
The extended time on the training pitches at Playford Road has given the lads a chance to learn more about Kieran McKenna, who took on the role of Blues boss last month.
Saturday's trip to MEMS Priestfield will be Kieran's second match in charge of Town, with more than 2,000 members of the Blue Army backing the lads in Kent.
"The sessions have been good and we have had a week or so to build up to the game this weekend," Sone told iFollow Ipswich.
"We've been working on a few things and we've got to know the manager more as well. We're understanding what he wants from us, and what he wants to see in our patterns of play which is really good. It's been a productive period and I think we have used the time well.
"You have to play the hand you're dealt and we had a game called off so the main thing to do was use the extra time on the training pitch. Kieran has been learning about us as well and it will be the same once we get back into the matches.
"The style of training has been different and enjoyable, and as a team we are taking it on board.
"We're expecting a tough one tomorrow. Style wise I think there are similarities to Wycombe, and it will be a good battle.
"We have to manage the game as well as we can and try to win our individual battles, and then hopefully show our quality."
