Ipswich Town manager Kieran McKenna says his team will continue to play with a 'big club' mindset every time they step out at Portman Road.

Wednesday night's 3-1 home victory against Millwall made it eight wins out of nine on Suffolk soil since promotion to the Championship, cutting the gap on league leaders Leicester to one point.

Overall, McKenna's home league record in charge reads an impressive: P43 W31 D9 L3 F104 A33.

Speaking ahead of tomorrow's visit of Coventry City, the Blues boss said: "Our intent doesn't sway wildly home or away. We always want to be an aggressive, attacking team. 

"But there's no doubt that having a full stadium, almost 30,000 people cheering our every attack, every touch, every set-play, every tackle and, really importantly, sticking right behind the players if we concede, makes a big difference.

"We've built up a really good home identity. We haven't won every game at home and we're not going to win every game at home. We lost to Leeds at home (3-4) but scored three goals against a team that were one month out of the Premier League. 

"Win, lose or draw, supporters know there's always going to be maximum effort, there's going to be attacking intent, a real intent to play in a brave style, to try and play as a big club, make it an exciting place to play football and that the players are going to go to very last minute. Those are the things that we've tried to guarantee and the supporters have got right behind that.

"We can't rest on that though. We need to keep giving all those things I've just mentioned and we need the supporters, hopefully, to keep turning up and giving that level of backing, no matter how the game is going, to keep that home form going and to make Portman Road a great place for us to play and difficult place for opposition to come."

Coventry City finished fifth in the Championship last season, lost to Luton in the Play-Off Final before seeing star men Viktor Gyokeres and Gustavo Hamer depart.

Following a slow start to this campaign, long-serving boss Mark Robins has started to get a tune out of his new-look squad in recent weeks. The Sky Blues come into this match 15th in the table off the back of wins against Millwall (3-0 away) and Plymouth (1-0 at home).

"I think Mark's the longest serving manager in the whole Football League, so to have that longevity nowadays is a massive achievement," said McKenna.

"He's done a fantastic job taking them from where they were to where they are now. Of course last season they got so close.

"When you lose two players of the ilk they did it's always going to be a readjustment. They brought in some really good replacements though and they're starting to get some good form now.

"They've changed some things tactically in the last couple of games that's maybe helped them a little bit. It's another good challenge for us to look forward to and embrace."
