Sousa Looks Ahead To Ipswich Game

Sousa Looks Ahead To Ipswich Game

Paulo Sousa shares his thoughts about Saturday's trip to Ipswich Town, and he's looking for his side to add more pressure to Tractor Boys boss Roy Keane and his under-performing players.

The former Manchester United captain has had a dreadful start to the season at Portman Road, and he is yet to witness his side win a League match this term as they lie bottom of the Championship table with 5 points.

Swansea City meanwhile have been on a better run of form lately, and you could say that the international break came at the wrong time for us, as we began gaining some regular points with 2 wins and a draw in the last 3. We're also unbeaten in 5 games.

Sousa told the Evening Post:

'The situation at Ipswich can affect the game a lot,'

'If people are under pressure that means there is also pressure on the players, and when that is the case we must try to profit from that.

'Ipswich have scored goals this season. That shows you they are strong, but they have also conceded goals and that's why there is pressure.

'And when the pressure is on, you need to create more pressure from the start of a game.

'You have to make things more difficult for the team you are playing and that is what we will try to do.'
