Paul Cook makes comment involving Ipswich Town and Sunderland as clash looms large

Ipswich Town boss Paul Cook has moved t0 play down the significance of his side’s game against Sunderland this coming weekend, during a recent interview that he gave to TWTD.

The Tractor Boys head into the game at the weekend in strong form after losing just once in their last six matches across all competitions.

They are set to face a Sunderland side at the Stadium of Light who by comparison have failed to win in each of their last six, thus seeing the pressure piled onto the shoulders of their manager Lee Johnson.

The game is sure to attract plenty of attention given the reputations of the two clubs as promotion favourites, however Cook was keen to play down the significance of the clash recently:

“It’s a game that we’re all looking forward to when you get fixtures coming along like that. But you get three points, it’s football, it’s the same as playing any of the other teams in the division.

“You’ll see it everyone deeming it ‘a big game’ and then when we get to the end of the season we have bigger games. The reality is that they’re all just the same to me.”

A victory on the road for the Tractor Boys could see them close the gap on the play-off places if other results go their way across the division.

Whilst a win on home turf for the Black Cats could see them move into the top six.

The Verdict 

Make no mistake about it, the result that they achieve on Saturday will give a lot of people a good indication of where Ipswich are at as a team right now.

They have finally started to hit form at the right time and now the onus will be on them to go out and beat one of their promotion rivals.

Sunderland are in a sticky patch of their own right now, so there probably isn’t a much better time to play them if truth be told.

A win could really kick start something special for the Tractor Boys moving forwards.
