Kieran McKenna has 'two or three' areas where he wants to improve his Ipswich Town squad, with the manager also revealing discussions have taken place regarding the future of players out of contract this week.

A struggle for form in recent weeks has seen Town finish the season with a whimper, with just one game of the 46-game season to go.

The Blues are without a win in five, suffering two defeats and three draws to put an end to play-off hopes.

Although he didn't reveal which positions he would be targeting specifically, the Town boss believes it is important to keep improving in every area.

"I think there's two or three," he said when asked which positions he would be looking to add to.

"I don't think it's fair to talk to specifically on that, I think we are pretty clear on the areas that we want to improve and aspects we want to improve of the team. I think everyone internally at the club is trying to move that forward now.

"But overall, I guess it is important to keep improving in every area. This year there's things we've done well as a team and things we want to do better."

McKenna revealed that the players will be back at the training ground on Sunday for further meetings, before they take their own post-season breaks.

Those meetings will include players who are out of contract, with some talks having already been conducted during the week.

He added: "We have had some discussions this week and over the course of this week, and some more discussions will take place on Sunday.

"There is no break as such, it's just continue straight through. Obviously eyes turn towards next season and recruitment. I have got some meetings with the players on Sunday, and Monday will be pretty much straight onto the next thing.

"It's important to take a holiday at some point, but it's very much going to be continuing with the process that we are on."
