Erol pre-Ipswich Town | A tough test

Erol Bulut spoke to the press to preview our Sky Bet Championship clash against Ipswich Town on Saturday afternoon.

The Tractor Boys are enjoying an impressive first season back in the second-tier, currently sitting second in the table.

“They have a good team,” Erol began. “I think they have played together for two years with the coach.

“They made really good work this season. Every player that they took settled in and helped them a lot. This is also important.”

In the reverse fixture at Portman Road back in September, the hosts staged a second half comeback to claim a 3-2 victory.

Erol continued: “That was one of the games where we could have taken at least one point. Ipswich are a team who have got a lot of wins in the last 15 minutes, scoring also against Bristol City. They started a little bit quiet. After 2-1, they start to wake up. The last 15-20 minutes, they changed the game again. We have to be careful with this.

“We know what is expected of us. With one day less of recovery, we will be against them on Saturday. We have to recover quickly and prepare for the game on Saturday. It will be a tough game, of course. I hope we can get what we are expecting.”

The Bluebirds head into Saturday’s fixture having won three consecutive fixtures, with victories over Stoke City, Bristol City and Huddersfield Town.

Bulut’s side are now 10th in the table, three points behind Preston North End in ninth.

Erol concluded: “Right now, we’re focusing on positive results and good positioning in the league with Cardiff City.

“There are ten more games to play and we will try and get maximum points that we can get. We are thinking only about winning games with my team.”
