Ipswich's Cole Skuse: "We've given ourselves a great chance, more than good enough to get in the play-offs"

Ipswich Town are now just two points outside of the play-off spots in the Championship after winning 2-nil away at Huddersfield on Tuesday night.

On the day after the match Ipswich midfield player Cole Skuse was answering questions at a corporate event with the Co-op, one of the club's sponsors. A promotional do ahead of a possible promotion maybe?

Skuse said: "Two points off it with five to go we've given ourselves a great chance. We've got more than a good enough squad to get in the play-offs."

Town play Doncaster on Saturday, and with the club offering free tickets to local schools, they're hoping to have more than 20,000 at Portman Road.

Ipswich Town loanee Jonny Williams says that he's "delighted" to have extended his stay with the club until the end of the season.

The talented midfielder has been a regular in Town's side since joining from Crystal Palace in February.

His form has been a key part in Ipswich closing the gap on the Championship play-off positions to just two points, and Williams believes that his side could make the top six come the end of the campaign.

“I’m delighted to be extending the loan because I’ve really enjoyed my time at Ipswich,” Williams told the club's official website.

“It’s been a great experience for me and I’ve loved working under the manager and TC [Terry Connor].

“I’m excited to get back training with the lads and playing my part as we try and push into the Play-Offs.”

Premier League side Palace do have the option to recall the 20-year-old at 24 hours notice.

Town had to come from behind after former MK Dons loanee Patrick Bamford opened the scoring after just 33 seconds, but a sensational strike from the impressive Jonny Williams evened things up with 20 minutes to play.

The game looked to be heading for a draw, but Berra had other ideas, connecting with an Aaron Cresswell corner to bag all three points.

If that wasn't enough, Town's play-off rivals Wigan Athletic, Reading, Nottingham Forest, and Brighton and Hove Albion all lost meaning that the Tractor Boys are now just two points outside the top six with eight games left to play.
