Ipswich Town forward Conor Chaplin believes the Blues have a 'clear identity' in the way they want to play this season.

The 25-year-old play a key part in the early stages of Kieran McKenna's tenure, scoring five goals following the arrival of the former Manchester United coach.

And ahead of this weekend's trip to The New Lawn to face newly-promoted Forest Green Rovers, Chaplin was full of praise for his manager and team-mates.

He said: "I think we have got a clear identity in terms of the way we want to play, and I don't think we will ever go away from that. If that doesn't work, it is just trying harder to be better at it and trying harder to improve.

"In terms of going to places like this where it can be tough at times, we have just got to keep trusting the process.

"There is more than enough quality on the pitch for the 11 that start and the five subs that potentially come on."

Chaplin started the first game of the season last weekend against Bolton, before being replaced by Sone Aluko shortly after the 70th minute mark.

It demonstrated the quality Town possess in their squad, with only the goal of promotion in their sights.

"There is one common goal and that's all that matters," added Chaplin.

"Everyone is on board with that and it is such a good feeling to have in the squad. I don't think there is many things stronger than that.

"We have got an amazing squad if you are lucky enough to be in the starting line-up. We have got players that would start at every other club in the league that can't get in the squad."
