Judge: Important to Keep Momentum Going
Wednesday, 22nd Jan 2020 14:30
Blues midfielder Alan Judge says Town need to maintain their building momentum when they face Lincoln City at Portman Road on Saturday.
Since the Blues lost 5-3 to the Imps at Sincil Bank on December 29th the Blues have won two - most recently the 2-1 from-behind victory at Tranmere on Saturday - and drawn two and climbed back to third in the table, two points behind leaders Rotherham and Wycombe, who lost 4-0 at Peterborough last night, in second.
"It was a big, big win at Tranmere. I don't think many teams will go there and take all three points with the pitch in that condition so to get through was massive for us," Judge told iFollow Ipswich.
"We needed it because Lincoln have been a tough team for us. We also have a tough February coming up with the likes of Peterborough and Sunderland, plus Rotherham to finish January.
"To have points on the board heading into those games is important and we need to try and keep the momentum going.
"Things have been better since Lincoln [away] and I think that served as a wake-up call. Let's not kid ourselves they put five past us.
"But we're in a better position now. I'm looking forward to getting back out there at Portman Road and we'll be doing everything we can to put in another good performance."
The Republic of Ireland international netted his first Town goal in the 1-0 FA Cup first round replay win at Lincoln in November and scored his first league goal for the Blues in the 4-1 victory over Accrington Stanley in the last home match.

Wing Wonders (Part Two) by ElephantintheRoom
As the sixties morphed into the seventies, wing wonders at Portman Road were a bit like London buses. Four had come along at once, though in truth one or two (like those same London buses) were also easy to miss.
2019/20 - Grating Expectations by tractorboykent
A lot of comments at the moment would suggest that we are in the midst of a(nother) crisis. Whilst the league table doesn’t reflect that, the perception is likely more based on our own expectations of where we’d be at this stage.
Wing Wonders (Part One) by ElephantintheRoom
It’s a curiosity of Town’s great years that the two big successes – winning the league under Alf Ramsey and the UEFA Cup under Bobby Robson were based on teams without true wingers.
John Cobbold’s Ace Gardener by ElephantintheRoom
For newer Town supporters perhaps, the name Colin Viljoen has disappeared into the mists of time. But for those of us who started supporting Town in the 60s his name is fondly recalled as a true great. His highlights reel alone (alas it exists only in memory) would mark him out as someone special.
Big Al by ElephantintheRoom
When the Kevin Beattie statue is revealed, I suspect it will be his great pal and fellow central defensive titan, Allan Hunter, who will do the revealing. What will be going through Big Al’s mind I wonder? Sadness at his friend’s passing – but mixed with fierce pride perhaps.
