NOT all of them could make the training ground yesterday morning but a dozen Town supporters over from Norway will be seeing if the practice pays off for Ipswich Town tonight against Sheffield United.

NOT all of them could make the training ground yesterday morning but a dozen Town supporters over from Norway will be seeing if the practice pays off for Ipswich Town tonight against Sheffield United.

The group, part of the Norwegian branch of the Town Supporters Club, watched as Town were held to a 1-1 draw at Southampton and have stayed over for tonight's game at Portman Road.

Terge Schander first started backing the Blues in 1969 when English games were broadcast in his native Oslo and he has been hooked on Town since, while some of his younger friends started during the Robson era.

Schander said: “I got interested because I love the Town's style of football.”
