Anthony Georgiou is hoping his starting chance for Ipswich Town arrives soon.

The Tottenham loanee has now made four substitute appearances for the Blues, with the latest coming in Saturday's 0-0 home draw with fellow unbeaten League One side Doncaster Rovers.

Georgiou's next chance could come at MK Dons on Tuesday night as Paul Lambert's men face the second of three games in eight days, with a trip to Gillingham following on Saturday.

"Whenever I get the chance I will be happy and ready," said the 22-year-old left-winger.

"Obviously I want to be starting games but whether I do or not I just have to keep showing what I can do and work my way in.

"We have three games this week, so many games, so I think maybe the best thing to do is keep rotating and keep everyone fresh.

"We have so many good players here so we're able to do that. It's a big squad full of good players and that will only help throughout the season."
