The 6ft 6inch Austrian striker, who has scored five times in 43 appearances this season, told the Sheffield Star he is expecting a tough game against a side he says are ‘direct and physical’.

“I have played Ipswich a few times in the last three years,” he said.

“They are one of the most direct and physical teams in the league.

“They are probably one of the ugliest teams to play against. Their style will never change. They have their one way to play.

“Everybody knows Ipswich are a tough team to beat and are always 100 per cent in challenges.

He said: “You have to battle against them, but I think we have got the players to get stuck in. If we win our challenges, I think football wise we can damage them. That’s what we have done all season.

“If we win our battles, everybody knows we have a lot of quality in the final third which can make a difference.”
