Ipswich boss Kieran McKenna reckons his side have what it takes to overcome Wanderers this weekend.

The Tractor Boys currently sit third in the League One table and have won four matches on the spin following Tuesday night’s 3-0 victory against Accrington.

McKenna says they will have to be at their best against “a good team” but is optimistic about their chances.

He told East Anglian Daily Times: “Bolton was one of the most challenging games we had last season when I first took over and they've improved this season.

"We had a really good match against them on the first day of the season, and we've both gone on to have strong seasons as a lot of people probably predicted after watching that match.

"It will be good to go there and challenge ourselves against a good team.

"We'll go there with belief, but also with humility knowing we'll have to work hard and probably play better than we did against Accrington.

"If we perform, we know we've got a good chance to go there and win."

Nathan Broadhead, Kayden Jackson and Kyle Edwards were all on target against Accrington in midweek.

Speaking after the game, McKenna explained: “It was a good result. Another clean sheet, three goals at home, a couple of very good team goals and a wonderful individual goal, so lots of positives to take.

“There was lots to like about the (opening) goal. It starts from the boys’ bravery on build-up and we’re playing against an aggressive team who come to press against us.

“The players, starting from Christian Walton onwards, have had to be really brave on build-up and we know if we do that then it creates a space higher up the pitch.

“We have the players, the set-up and organisation to exploit that space but it doesn’t come without the bravery of the boys.

“It takes a lot of work, a lot of development, a lot of time and effort, and a lot of organisation behind it. To be the top scorers in the league is probably something that the boys do not get that credit for.”
