Ipswich Loanee's House Burgled After Defeat

Ipswich Loanee's House Burgled After Defeat

Ritchie Wellens is looking forward to creating some happy memories at Ipswich after a particularly cruel Christmas visit to Portman Road.

"I`ve had good memories of playing at Portman Road, I`ve had a few wins here over the years, but I`ve also got a few bad memories of playing here,' Wellens told the club website.

"I remember coming here a few years ago and playing in the snow, I should have brought my shovel.

'It wasn`t a great day for me as we lost the game, live on Sky and then after a long trip home I got back to see my house had been burgled, so that wasn`t a great day!

"But I also know what a great stadium Portman Road is and I`m looking forward to playing here, getting some games and helping the side move up the table."

Wellens played well against Cradiff on his debut after joining on loan from Leicester to get fit after six months out with a cruciate knee ligament injury.

He added: "It`s good to have played and been out on a pitch again, but it was just a shame we couldn`t get the win.

"I thought we performed well against the team at the top and in the end we`ve made two mistakes and been punished.
