IPSWICH Town manager Jim Magilton is looking forward to “keeping our bandwagon rolling” when the Blues visit table-topping Stoke City on Saturday.

IPSWICH Town manager Jim Magilton is looking forward to “keeping our bandwagon rolling” when the Blues visit table-topping Stoke City on Saturday.

The Blues have won three of their last four games, and have been beaten in the league just once in 2008 and Magilton said today: “It's a fantastic game for us and another challenge.

“We are looking forward to it and a good result will keep our bandwagon rolling.”

Potters manager Tony Pulis watched Ipswich beat Blackpool at Portman Road on Saturday, and Magilton added: “We are now better equipped to go to the Britannia Stadium than four or five weeks ago. Two away wins have given us renewed confidence.

“Tony will be confident of three points but his team will be wary of us. He has a lot of talented boys in a side based on a very solid back four.”

Following their trip to Stoke, Ipswich will be left with only Hull and Charlton (both at home), to play of the other top ten sides.

But Magilton has warned Blues fans to expect a nail-biting end to the Coca-Cola Championship season.

He went on; “I expect the promotion race to go right down to the wire.”

Ipswich have 13 matches left and Magilton says that an “easier” fixture list will not necessarily help his cause.

“I can see where people are coming from when they look at our 'easier' clutch of games,” said Magilton.

“But there are no easy matches in this division, and teams are all capable of beating each other.

“We will have to be spot-on in every game we play.

“If not, we will soon get our comeuppance.”
