Ipswich under pressure to perform

Ipswich under pressure to perform

Coventry City travel to Portman Road on Sunday with what looked to be a gentle end-of-season clash suddenly turned into Roy Keane's first home as Ipswich Town manager and what Blues' fans hope will be the start of rollercoaster ride back into the Premier League under the controversial Irishman.

Chris Coleman has admitted that the game has come at the worst possible time for his depleted and demoralised squad as they limp over the line in the Championship.

Ipswich in contrast are full of beans after the arrival of Keane and a 3-0 win at Ipswich.

Striker Jon Stead told the club's official website: 'There will be a greater expectation now.

'He is a fantastic name and he can attract some new players so I am sure there will be some changes to the playing staff over the summer.'

We will want to go out with a bang in our last game and with so many (14) out of contract players. The ones who play will be playing for a new contract. I expect us to win by at least three goals because of what Coleman said last week that he is just wanting this season to end now.
