MARK Noble today put behind him the disappointment of losing to a last-ditch goal at Burnley to predict a quick return to winning ways for Ipswich.
The 19-year-old will be returning to West Ham after this Saturday's home Championship game against Sheffield Wednesday.
And the loanee wants to go out with a bang.
“I have really enjoyed being at Portman Road, and I would love to go out with a win. Go out with a bang,” said Noble, who played a forward midfield role at Turf Moor on Saturday when Town lost to a stoppage time Chris McCann header.
Noble has made 12 appearances and scored one goal since joining Town on loan in mid-August.

“The move has been good for me, and I hope it has been good for Ipswich,” added Noble.
“I am looking forward to the Wednesday game and am sure we have got it in us to get back to winning ways.
“I have no doubts that Ipswich have what it takes to move up the table, and if I am not playing for West Ham and there is a chance of a return to Ipswich I would be very interested in taking it.
“We were all gutted in the dressing room on Saturday, because we had passed the ball so well and worked so hard. I was over the moon to play in a free role in a game we could so easily have won.”
Noble has no doubt Ipswich's much-publicised high number of bookings - now 52 after three at Burnley - will subside.
He explained: “Ipswich have a number of fiery players, who love to tackle and love to stay involved.
“But we are not dirty and the bookings will ease off I am sure.”
