With Ipswich Town’s Championship season just over a week away from kicking-off, excitement is building at Portman Road – the buzz at Thursday’s open day spreading a new wave of optimism amongst supporters.

Six new signings have been brought in to date, with Joe Garner, Bersant Celina, Emyr Huws and Tom Adeyemi expected to add a new attacking energy to proceedings and Dominic Iorfa and Jordan Spence bolstering Town’s defensive options, as well as being expected to create chances from out wide.

With the hunt for a striker still in full flow, Chief Football Writer Stuart Watson joined sports writer Chris Brammer for a Facebook Live chat earlier this lunchtime.

The duo looked ahead to tomorrow’s final friendly of the summer at Charlton, reflected on the success of the open day and discussed whether Mick McCarthy can finally pin down that elusive replacement for Daryl Murphy.

Jordan Spence has been telling his Ipswich Town team-mates just how much of a threat he is in front of goal - and the defender is delighted to be proving his point on the field.

“We might not be the best, but we keep going. It’s an endearing quality we have.”

Watch match highlights of Ipswich Town’s 2-2 draw at Hull City on Saturday.

A point at Hull City should not be seen as anything other than a good result ordinarily and the fact that we gained that point with a late equaliser certainly felt better than a loss. But were they not there for the taking on the day?

It was certainly an eventful day for David McGoldrick.

Jordan Spence believes his late leveller at Hull shows the character of the Ipswich Town squad.
