Ipswich Town: Captain Sam Morsy ready for club’s final promotion push and reflects on his midfield performances

Ipswich Town captain Sam Morsy is ready for the club’s final push for promotion and has reflected on his performances this season.

The 32-year-old midfielder, who was named the Supporters' Player of the Year, has been hugely impressive in the middle of the park this term.

Kieran McKenna’s men aren't playing this weekend due to scheduled opponents Coventry City being in FA Cup action as Town prepare to face their final three games knowing that maximum points will secure automatic promotion.

Speaking to the club website, Morsy said: "It’s great that we’ve been so competitive at such a tough level.

"It's never going to be easy to get to the Premier League and we shouldn't expect it to be easy either. If it was easy, it wouldn't be worth doing.

"We're going to have some big challenges, and that is the test in these next few weeks - can we overcome these challenges?

"We've enjoyed this season and we enjoy being together. We're going to fight to the death for each other."

The Egyptian is now coming to the end of his third campaign with the Blues.

He said he is happy with his current form and praised the work of staff in consistently driving standards at the club.

“I've managed to find a good level of consistency," Morsy said.

"I've been happy with my form again this season. It's just always about pushing and trying to get better and trying to improve. I think that's the only mentality you can have.

"I think the moment you believe you can't improve, then your trajectory is going to be down.

“That's one of the big qualities of the staff, that they are trying to improve every player, and that's just something which I live my life by, trying to improve and trying to better myself, so being here in this environment has suited me perfectly. Staff drive standards and so do we.

"I still feel there's room to improve. I'd be disappointed if this was the best of what I've got, so I'm going to keep improving, keep pushing and see where it takes me.”
