Ipswich Town striker Freddie Sears admits it has been a difficult season for himself at Portman Road this campaign.

However, the former West Ham striker is pleased to be going in to next season on the back of two goals in as many games. 

Sears hadn’t scored in 38 consecutive games for the Tractor Boys, a barren run stretching back to the end of the 2016/17 season.

However, he scored in the 4-0 rout against Reading at the Madejski Stadium, before finding the net on the final day of the season in the 2-2 draw with Middlesbrough.

Speaking to IFollow Ipswich, Sears said “It was a difficult season for me personally,

“I think it was frustrating for a number of reasons but mainly because I wasn’t playing as much as I would have liked to and because I wasn’t scoring goals.

“But to get on the scoresheet in the last two games was important and the season I’ve had made it that bit more special.”

Since joining from Colchester United in 2015, Sears has made 115 appearances for Town, registering 22 goals in the league.

Despite his poor record in front of goal, his tenacious and never say die attitude has seen him gain a positive relationship with the Ipswich faithful.

The Tractor Boys finished the season in decent form, and Sears believes they can pick up where they left off next season.

“The season was tough for the whole squad, though and while we’re looking forward to a rest now, we’ll be desperate to get back at it when next season comes around.” He said.

Ipswich Town will be under new management next season, and it will be the beginning of a new era at Portman Road.
