The Tractor Boys kick off their 2016/17 Championship campaign against newly promoted Barnsley at Portman Road this Saturday, aiming to get their season off to a flying start.
Mick McCarthy’s men looked bright over the summer after only losing twice in their six pre-season friendlies and have expressed their intentions to finish in the top six for the forthcoming campaign.
Despite being offered minimal spending money, Ipswich has bolstered their squad over the summer – clinching Grant Ward, Paul Digby and Adam Webster.
However, with signings coming into the squad, it is likely that some of the players that did not feature regularly last year will be pushed further down the pecking order.
Players are never happy to be sat on the bench, and should take opportunity to find a team that will offer first team football.
With high expectations for the season, Mick McCarthy will find further ways to improve his squad before the transfer window closes Wednesday 31st August.
