They may remain in a perilous position in the lower reaches of the Championship table, but to use a term coined by Frank Nouble, everything at Ipswich Town is CLACK!

A potential contender for the next volume of The Oxford English Dictionary, the phrase means anything good or positive and is used regularly by the youngster on a range of social networking sites.

Coined by his uncle, in a world of instant messaging and file sharing, the 21-year-old is keen to spread the word among fans and players as Town’s Championship status hangs by a thread.

Town are four points clear of the drop-zone with nine games to go but the ever-positive Nouble revealed the pressure wasn’t affecting his team-mates, ahead of tomorrow’s clash with in-form Bolton Wanderers, winners of their last five games.

“There are bound to be a few nerves, it would not be natural for there to be none.

“If you are not nervous, you are not focused on what you are doing,” he said.

“But I don’t think the boys are worried because we know we are in control. If we play well, we will win.

“It’s natural to look at other teams around us but our position is very good and our fate is in our own hands.

“We have got a lot of home games coming up and hopefully we can take advantage of them.”

Nouble will be sat in the stands for tomorrow’s game, after tweaking a hamstring in training, but will remain committed to the cause.

“My own personality itself is positive, whether or not I am on the pitch and all I can do is encourage my team-mates week in, week out,” he added.
