Christophe Berra has experienced promotion and relegation in the Championship – and he is still convinced Ipswich Town have a successful campaign ahead of them.
The Blues have claimed just four points from a possible 15 at the start of the season following Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Birmingham City, but in no way does that do justice to some impressive displays.
“I think our performances recently have been very good,” said summer signing Berra, who tasted the highs and lows of second tier football at former club Wolves.
“You can’t keep saying ‘we’ve got beat, but it was a good performance’ though.
“At Wolves (last season) we kept saying ‘it will turn, it will turn’ and it didn’t. We’re obviously not in that sort of bad position, but it does demonstrate that it’s important to take your chances when they come along.”
The 28-year-old, who opened the scoring at St Andrew’s with his first goal in English football, continued: “It has to be remembered we’ve played a lot of good teams early on, the likes of Reading and QPR.
“It’s not a sprint it’s a marathon and we’re still aiming for the play-offs in what is a long, long season.

“I came here because I thought the club had all the ingredients to be successful and I still feel that way.
“There’s great competition for places, a good positive atmosphere about the place and I can still see a bright season ahead.”
