We need to “fix the faults” before Reading, says Ivar Ingimarsson

IVAR Ingimarsson has praised the impact of fellow centre-back Danny Collins as he prepares to face old club Reading.

The one-time Icelandic international made more than 250 starts for Saturday’s opponents and captained the side under current Royals boss Brian McDermott.

But Ingimarsson is fully focused on ending Town’s barren run and has seen signs of progress in his burgeoning partnership with Collins who was an unlikely marksman – twice – against Nottingham Forest last Saturday.

And of his defensive partner, Ingimarsson said: “Danny is a good player and a great professional. He is very experienced, knows the game and is a great talker amongst the back four.

“It’s not often you see a defender scoring two goals, but they were two great headers and they probably didn’t deserve to end up counting for nothing in the end.

“Obviously it was disappointing to lose the game, having been leading with six minutes to go, but we have to move on now and try and fix the faults in time for Reading this weekend.”
