A fast start to the season for Ipswich Town would be a 'big boost' according to manager Kieran McKenna.

Town were hampered by a poor start under then-manager Paul Cook last season, failing to win any of their first six games.

Among those games was a heavy 5-2 defeat at home to tomorrow's opponents Bolton Wanderers, who Town boss McKenna is expecting big things from this season.

And while a good start would offer plenty of momentum, he says it does not guarantee anything.

He said: "It would be a big boost to everyone and would maintain the positive momentum that we have at the moment.

"It doesn't guarantee anything if you get a good start. I think in previous seasons we've been in League One we've had really good starts and then fallen away.

"There is no secret recipe. I think it is about having the right foundations in place, having the right culture and ethos in the group that is going to allow you to be successful over 46 games.

"The focus has been around building the blocks for a 46-game season."
