Ipswich Town captain Luke Chambers has revealed the excitement he holds, as his side faces former team-mate Luke Varney at Burton Albion on Good Friday.

The Blues travel to Staffordshire for the first ever time, looking to overcome their current form of one victory in ten games.

Whilst the Tractor Boys have won just once in ten games, they have also lost just once, but a number of draws makes precarious reading for Town supporters.

The Blues will be looking to move twelve points clear of the relegation spots with a win. But, to add to the spice, the Blues will be facing a former Tractor Boy, Luke Varney.

“It will be a bit tasty I’m sure!” Chambers told Ipswich Town FC.

“I’m looking forward to seeing him first and foremost but once the game kicks off I’m sure you’ll see some feistiness.

“When he was here, he didn’t make any secret of that face he’d like to go back to be closer to his family because they only came down for a short period of time so it was a good opportunity for him.

“He is, in my opinion, still a very good player at this level.

“It will be a good atmosphere at Burton, as I’d imagine they’re still enjoying their season.

“They haven’t settled for being one of the favourites to go down and they’ve earnt the right to be where they are in the League, but it’s a game we have to go and try to win.

“We always try to win the game, and whether it looks like it or not, so we just need to be at our best and we don’t want it to go down to the last couple of games, so we need to get something.”
