DRISSA Diallo woke this morning with two goals in mind.
The Ipswich Town defender's wish to see his native Guinea beat Mali in the Cup of African Nations is surpassed by his desire to help the Blues beat Wigan at Portman Road tonight (kick-off 5.35pm).
“The Wigan game is massive,” admitted the 31-year-old, who made his full return after a knee operation in last Saturday's 1-1 draw at Coventry.

“Three points will be a big boost and hopefully it will kick-start us on a run that will take us higher up the First Division table. If we are beaten we will get overtaken by Wigan and there is a chance we will slip down the table.”
