Ipswich Town boss Paul Cook has claimed his side are the “biggest and best club” in League One.

The Tractor Boys are 20th in the league table, having taken six points from their opening seven fixtures.

Earlier in the month, Wanderers ran out 5-2 winners against Ipswich following an emphatic performance at Portman Road.

Dapo Afolayan bagged a brace, with Eoin Doyle, Josh Sheehan and George Johnston also getting on the scoresheet.

The Tractor Boys made 19 signings in the transfer window and were one of the early favourites for promotion to the Championship.

Despite their slow start to the season, Cook insists he still has belief in the squad ahead of this weekend's clash with Sheffield Wednesday.

"I just think we’re the biggest club in the league, we’re the best club in the league and I think we’ve got the best squad. But what would be what I think, wouldn’t it?” he told the East Anglian Daily Times.

“To manage these sort of teams – whether it’s me, Danny Cowley, Darren Moore, Lee Johnson – it's a great honour.

“Because if you can be the one who delivers success to the fans then you’ll be held in such high esteem.

“These clubs are desperate to go back to where they want to be,” he added.
