Wickham wants to reach his season goal target against Canaries

CONNOR Wickham today revealed that he has set himself a target of 10 goals this season - and he’d love to reach this figure against Norwich City at Portman Road on Thursday.

The 18-year-old hot shot has eight goals to his credit so far - all scored since Paul Jewell arrived as manager in January.

It will be Wickham’s first experience of an East Anglian derby and he is expected to continue playing up front on his own with Andy Drury or Colin Healy coming into midfield to replace the suspended Lee Martin.

“I netted six times last season and I’ve told the coaches all along that I want to reach double figures this time around,” said Wickham.

“The sooner I can get there the better.
