Russell Slade spoke to the Press and Media at The Vale this morning, looking ahead to tomorrow’s trip to Ipswich Town.
The City boss highlighted the importance of creativity in the final third, as he set his sights on picking up three points away from home.
“Ipswich were a real threat last season,” said Russell. “Mick [McCarthy] had them in a really good place, with great balance to his team.
“They’ve still got a very good group of players together. You look at their squad and it’s well capable of getting into the top six.
“In order to compete at the top, you need to be difficult to beat at the back, and have threats going forward.
“We’ve lost just four football matches in twenty-three, but we’re working hard on creating chances and having that ruthlessness in the final third.”
