KEANE’S FO­CUS IS DRIV­ING TRAC­TOR BOYS ON

The Football League Paper - - NEWS - By Ben­jamin Thomas

WILL KEANE is con­fi­dent his new club, Ip­swich, can string re­sults to­gether to lift them clear of trou­ble in the Cham­pi­onship.

The 25-year-old striker has joined the Suf­folk club on loan from Hull un­til the end of the sea­son and cited the ex­am­ple set by his par­ent club, who were in the bot­tom three but have been pro­pelled up the stand­ings af­ter six wins from their last seven matches.

“It’s a great op­por­tu­nity for me to come here and hope­fully play some games and con­trib­ute to the team,” Keane said.

“I spoke to the man­ager (Paul Lam­bert) a cou­ple of days ago and it was an easy de­ci­sion for me.

“De­spite the po­si­tion in the league, I know it’s a great club. I know about the man­ager. I have played at the sta­dium. I’ve seen the train­ing ground. The foun­da­tions are in place for Ip­swich to be a top Cham­pi­onship club at least.

“I want to do ev­ery­thing I can for the cause here and score a few goals and help push the team up the league.

“I have seen it hap­pen re­cently at Hull. You put a few re­sults to­gether and you can cat­a­pult up the league. It’s doable.

“They were down at the bot­tom not so long ago, but got a cou­ple of wins and, be­fore you know it, that was four or five wins and the con­fi­dence starts to come and you build mo­men­tum.”
