IPSWICH Town striker Darren Bent is relishing the fact the new season is just one day away.
Bent, who scored 12 goals in the league for Town last year, has had a good pre-season and is now looking forward to scoring against Reading tomorrow.
"If the club gets a good start against Reading then it will set up the whole season for us.
"The pre-season went exceptionally well. I scored a lot of goals and I enjoyed having both Marcus and Pablo up front with me.
"Joe (Royle) is using a more attacking formation this year, which will hopefully benefit the club and do us justice on the pitch."
Bent continued: "The Reading match will be a tough one and it will be great if we beat them as they are a hard side."

On the season itself Bent said: "I think that, along with West Ham, West Brom, Sheffield United and Reading, Town have a great chance for promotion.
"We dropped stupid points against struggling teams last year and we must make sure we don't do that again."
However, Bent did not want to say anything on the financial situation at the club.
"The players don't know much on the situation. We concentrate on playing and leave the other decisions to the board," he said
