COLCHESTER United boss, Joe Dunne, has already faced up to the reality of losing his skipper, and star midfielder, Anthony Wordsworth.

Dunne admits that Wordsworth is likely to be snapped up, in the transfer market, when his contract expires next summer, or even when the transfer window reopens in January.

“Will I lose Anthony? Probably,” confessed Dunne during yesterday’s press conference.

“That’s the way of football at the moment, I am afraid, and I will probably lose a few more.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if he (Wordsworth) left even before the end of the season. If somebody came in, then he might.

“He’s over 24, so he’s on a free at the end of the season. He’s not a free in January, but he probably wouldn’t be as much as he would be if he was under a longer contract.

“He’s been a great servant to us, and he continues to be, and if he doesn’t go, it’s fine. He is pivotal to what we were trying to do at the club, and we don’t want to lose our best players.

“Our goal is to find the next Anthony Wordsworth, and I believe they are coming through,” added Dunne.

Ipswich Town have released their season ticket video for 2017/18 today - and you can watch it here.

Christophe Berra was an unused substitute as Scotland secured a vital 1-0 victory over Slovenia in their Group F qualifier against Slovenia, at Hampden Park.

It’s been a relief somewhat to not have to worry about the thought of an Ipswich game over the weekend and for someone that really dislikes a blank weekend because on an international break, it’s an indication of how bad things are right now.

It’s been a dismal season for Ipswich Town fans and it could yet get worse.

Ipswich may have broken out of their run of straight draws – but a 3-1 defeat isn’t really much to shout about.

Ipswich Town defender Tommy Smith has told a newspaper in New Zealand that he is 100% committed to playing for the national team, ahead of the All Whites’ World Cup qualifiers against Fiji.

With eight games to go, Ipswich Town are still not safe from relegation to League One, following a tough season in the Championship, and lost 3-1 at Cardiff City at the weekend.

Mick McCarthy says his managerial record is the reason for his longevity at Portman Road, not owner Marcus Evans’ perceived patience with his managers.

Ipswich Town will not be backtracking on their decision to raise the price of season tickets, despite a huge outcry from supporters.
