Ipswich Town striker Aaron Drinan has claimed that he can prove to be the best forward that the Tractor Boys have on their books over the coming months after returning to action after a three month injury lay off.
Having previously arrived at Portman Road back in January 2018, the Irishman has had to be patient in waiting to make his debut for the Sky Bet League One club after spending time on loan initially in both Sweden and Scotland with both GAIS Goteborg and Ayr United respectively.
Now Drinan is seemingly hellbent on making a name for himself at the East Anglian club and will be seeking to build upon the handful of appearances that has been afforded by Paul Lambert thus far.
Speaking to the East Anglian Daily Times, the 22-year-old had this to say about his aims and ambitions:
“It’s up to the manager now to pick who plays. The opportunity is there and my main aim is to take that and not give it back to anybody.

“Any player wants to be the best in their position and I have full faith in myself that I’m the best striker at the club. I’ll continue to try and show that.”
Drinan is yet to have hit the back of the net for the club and will no doubt be seeking to alleviate that fact when the Tractor Boys take on Oxford United tomorrow night in the league.
The next few months will prove crucial for Drinan as he seeks to finally make an impact for a club that he has been at for the best part of two years now.
Scoring that all important first goal in Ipswich colours should be the first thing on his agenda going forward, with actions certainly speaking much louder than words when it comes to football.
Given the pedigree of the club’s other strikers, I fear that Drinan may live to regret making such a claim as competition up top is likely to be fierce as the Tractor Boys chase promotion to the Championship.
Overall, I want to see the proof that’s in the pudding from the striker before I can decide whether I agree with him on this or not!
