Midfielder Richie Wellens delighted at return to action
Midfielder Richie Wellens has spoken of his relief to be finally back in action after his knee injury.
Wellens made his debut for Ipswich against Cardiff on Saturday after joining the Tractor Boys on loan to gain match fitness following more than six months out of action with a knee injury.
"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," he said after the 2-1 defeat, a result which saw Cardiff knock City off top spot in the Championship.
"I thought we performed well against the team at the top and, in the end, we've made two mistakes and been punished.
"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 find 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."
Marko Futacs and Martyn Waghorn were on target as the Leicester City's development squad continued their recent good form with victory over Nottingham Forest.
Both goals came in the first half as City made it five consecutive victories, to mirror the first team's form.
The under-21s are next in action at home to Coventry on October 19.
