Town are heading for a 20,000 gate for the opening home game of the season against Sunderland at the weekend.

The Black Cats, who lost out on an immediate return to the Championship with a Play-Off final defeat to Charlton in May, are considered the favourites for promotion and will bring a good support with them to Portman Road.

“It will be a cracking atmosphere on Saturday and the support we had at Burton and the noise the fans made was fantastic. They were worth the entrance money alone,” Town boss Paul Lambert told the Club website.

Last week Town announced there will be no cash turnstiles for home fans at Portman Roads this season.

Meanwhile Peterborough Owner Darragh MacAnthony has tweeted that Marcus Evans has been in dialogue with Posh’s Barry Fry.

The two regularly speak with Evans usually sounding out Fry for advice on football matters, the tweets do appear to indicate that Town will still be active in this transfer window.
