How City can revel in Portman Road atmosphere

City can give themselves the best chance of securing a positive result through generating their own atmosphere at Ipswich Town.

Lee Johnson believes the players and fans working together can "make a big difference."

His side secured their first win at Portman Roads for 39 years last season, with another positive result there tomorrow (Wednesday, November 28th, 7.45pm KO) ensuring an end to a recent run of defeats in the tight Sky Bet Championship.

Head Coach Johnson said: "It’s up to us to go and enjoy the atmosphere and create our own atmosphere, buoyed by our fans who are going and who were excellent against Leeds, and we thank them for that because they make a big difference.

"I can promise you we are going into the game very positively and we won’t show any fear. Of course we respect the opposition but we respect every opposition and it is our job to go and influence that game in a positive light and players to bring out their best personal performances."

The Tractor Boys currently find themselves bottom of the division but Johnson is still keen to see his own players perform if they are to get the job done.

"I love going to Portman Road, I always have," Johnson said. "It’s a fantastic, very traditional stadium. It’s an old style pitch and notoriously Ipswich have always played excellent football. This year they haven’t started as well as they’d have hoped but they have changed manager (Paul Lambert) and things are positive down there."

Tickets remain on sale for Wednesday night’s Championship fixture.
