Garbutt sends message out to fellow challengers

Luke Garbutt has sent a message out to the rest of League One saying ‘there’s no way teams can live with us’.

The Everton loanee has scored three goals in just four Ipswich starts since his summer move, and with a top of the table clash with Fleetwood on Saturday Garbutt says the squad is in confident mood.

“Putting the work in on the training ground is paying off, really, and long may it continue,” Garbutt said to Ipswich iFollow

“Hopefully we can push on now and really cement ourselves at the top of the league. The squad is in great shape, we’ve got an abundance of depth of players really so we’re flying. Hopefully we can continue that at Fleetwood.

“It will be a tough game, away from home, and we have to treat them with respect because they’re doing well. But we have to attack them, do the things we’re good at and believe we’re going to come out on the right side and get three points.

“We’ll go into that game fully confident we can do that.

“Looking at the squad and the way we can play, if we control what we can control there’s no way teams can live with us in this league, I believe.

“It will be us that knock ourselves down so if we keep focused and our mentality’s right then I don’t see any problems really.

“There will be plenty of ups and downs during a long season but we have to stick together. Right now, things couldn’t be better.”

Reflecting on his free-kick from Saturday, which has since won the clubs goal of the month, Garbutt added: “As soon as we got the free-kick I fancied it straightaway because I’ve been working on it in training and have been going in,”

“I felt confident going into it and as soon as I hit it I knew it was going in. I was made up to have scored and got the lads off to a good start.”
