SYLVAIN Legwinski will be 34 next month. But the French midfield player today confirmed that he is keen to sign another Ipswich Town contract next summer.

Still not completely free from pain after suffering a foot injury at Luton last spring, Legwinski confirmed that he is fit for selection for tonight's Coca-Cola Championship game against Coventry City at Portman Road (kick-off 5.20pm).

He made his first start of the season in the 4-0 defeat at West Brom last Saturday, and wants to play a big part in what he is convinced will be a successful Blues campaign.

And Legwinski is convinced Ipswich are equipped to make an impression in the Championship in 2007/08.

“We are going to do better than we did last season, that's for sure,” added Legwinski.

“The mentality of the players is brilliant and we have a better squad nowadays.

“It is in evidence on the training ground, and now we must show it on the pitch.”

Talking about his foot problem, the midfielder said: “I have been okay for a while.

“It is not perfect, but I can live with it and things are heading in the right direction.

“I am available for today's match and am capable of playing for 90 minutes.

“We are up against it when we play teams bolstered by cash from the Premier League, but despite our defeats at Watford and West Brom we did enough to prove that we are not far away from challenging the big guns.”
