Opposing fans view

We asked Phil the Ipswich fan five questions related to the live SKY SPORTS game on Friday.

How long have you supported Ipswich?
Iv'e supported Ipswich since I was 8, so 26 years. I used to go with my Dad and brother, and I've always had a season ticket.

What do you think of the Colchester/Ipswich derby. typical local derby or a friendly one?
I don't think Ipswich see it as much of a rivalry as Colchester.

How does this match compare to Ipswich Norwich?
Ipswich v Norwich has always been the main local derby. Can't say how it compares, as Ipswich and Colchester haven't played each other in the league for 50 years.

How do you think the respective teams will do this season?
Ipswich will be pushing for promotion, and Colchester should stay up.

Who should Colchester look out for on Friday
Billy Clarke if he plays, Alan Lee, Gavin Williams and Simon Walton.

What do you think the score will be?
2-1 to Ipswich

Thanks to Phil W for answering my questions.
