WEALTHY shareholder Michael Spencer paid a rare visit to Ipswich Town on Saturday, sparking hopes that he will be willing to give the Blues a much-needed large cash injection.

The money broker, worth in excess of £350m, was spending Christmas at his Suffolk home and, along with his two sons, watched as the Blues slumped to a dismal 1-0 defeat by Stoke.

Town must pick themselves up today for a visit to Coventry City and manager Jim Magilton said: “We don't have time to wallow in that defeat. We have to pick ourselves up and go into another tough game. There will be changes for the game at Coventry.

“Alan Lee has gone off the boil. All strikers go through it but perhaps we need to give him a rest.”

Ipswich have been linked with former Braintree Town striker Alex Revell, who is now at Brighton, with Coventry also reportedly keen on him. Town gave a trial to Woodbridge Town striker Joe Francis last week and the 20-year-old played in the 1-0 reserves friendly defeat at Watford. Ipswich have also invited Sparta Rotterdam right back Marciano Bruma to spend time training with them.
