IPSWICH boss Joe Royle intends to call in a few favours as he works his way through a shortlist of loan targets.

An upbeat Royle laughed today: "I might even blackmail a few managers to get what I want!"

He is confident of having one new face in the line-up against the First Division leaders and added: "I would like it to happen as soon as possible so that we can work with him in a team

formation beforehand.
