Town’s trip to Cardiff suggests they are still made of the right stuff

MOMENTUM...a seemingly new football buzz-word, or at least one that seems to be all the rage like never before.

Whether it is newly-promoted teams or ones with new managers, string a few results together and momentum is what you got.

And boy did Ipswich Town have it going into the international break. Take a spoonful of defensive solidity, a dose of fluidity and flexibility and a heap of prolific strikers and what do you have? You get my point.

So it was with a little trepidation that I made the long trip to Cardiff yesterday to see if a two-week gap had scuppered the rise of Paul Jewell’s new-look Blues.

Well I am happy to report it hasn’t - but only just.
