Exclusive: Ex-Ipswich captain drops worrying verdict on former club

Former Ipswich Town star David Norris believes that the club need to add more grit into their midfield because they’re conceding too many goals.

The League One club have struggled at the beginning of the season and currently sit 20th in the third-tier, only winning their first game of the season at the weekend, against Lincoln City.

Ipswich have conceded 15 goals in their opening seven games, the highest number of goals shipped in the league. AFC Wimbledon, who have conceded 13, are second in that list.

Will Ipswich get automatic promotion?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Indeed, the club conceded five against Bolton Wanderers before their win over Lincoln, and have conceded two each against both MK Dons and Wimbledon.

Norris believes that there is a real frailty at the club, in terms of their solidity, with it being too simple for the opposition to score goals.

He said: “So I think they’re lacking a little bit of grit in midfield and I think it’s too easy at the minute for teams to score against them. They’ve been too frail.”

Norris played for the club between 2008 and 2011, going on to become club captain in 2010.
