Ipswich Town winger Gwion Edwards has said he is looking forward to returning to London Road this weekend when Paul Lambert’s side face Peterborough United.

Ipswich Town’s Gwion Edwards made his return from injury in the club’s cup clash with Luton Town and could be involved this weekend when they face Peterborough United in the third game of the League One season.

Edwards spent a successful two years with the Posh from 2016 to 2018 before leaving to join the Tractor Boys before the start of last season. In his time with the club, the Welshman was a fan favourite. He played 74 games, scoring 14 goals and providing nine assists along the way.

Now, as he prepares to return to Peterborough United for the first time since his move, Edwards is looking forward to seeing some familiar faces in front of a packed out away end at London Road.

“I’m always desperate to be involved but it would be particularly nice to play against my old team and see some familiar faces,” Edwards said to Ipswich’s club website.

I enjoyed my time there and have good memories. They’re a club that looks to push and do well in the league and it was the same when I was there.

“Unfortunately we narrowly missed out on two occasions but I think they’ll be up there again this season.

“I know they’ve had a difficult start to the campaign but I do think it will be a really tough game for us tomorrow. But we’ve got plenty of fans travelling and it should be a cracking atmosphere. We’ll be right up for it and I’m looking forward to it.”
