Potter braced for "proud" Ipswich to provide test

The Tractor Boys will play their football in League One next season – the first time since 1957 that they will be outside the top two tiers of English football – after a difficult season that has seen them record just four wins.

Swansea will need no reminding that one of those came at the Liberty Stadium, where the East Anglian side emerged 3-2 victors.

And, with players having their futures on the line and pride to play for after a tough campaign, Potter expects nothing less than a challenging assignment against Paul Lambert’s men.

“No-one rolls over for you in the Championship, and certainly not at home,” he said.

“They will have players playing for their futures, either looking for a future in the Championship or to be part of trying to get the club back to the Championship.

“They are a proud club with a great history, you only have to look back and they have traditionally been a very strong club.

“So we expect a tough game, Paul Lambert will have them ready to go and ready to fight in front of their own fans.”
