Goalkeeper Dean Gerken believes that Ipswich Town are currently the team that everyone wants to defeat in the Championship.

Ipswich Town goalkeeper Dean Gerken has insisted that the Suffolk club have made themselves "the team to beat" in the Championship.

The Tractor Boys recovered from a one-goal deficit to defeat Huddersfield Town 2-1 at Portman Road on Saturday afternoon, which extended their winning run to three matches.

"Huddersfield were the team to beat after winning three on the bounce, now we have won three in a row so we are the team to beat," Gerken told the East Anglian Daily Times.

"Coming from behind and winning just shows the mental strength this team has. It is a massive win and three wins in three puts us right up there near the top six. We have hit a real bit of form and have lost only three games in the last 14."

Next Saturday Mick McCarthy's side will take on Nottingham Forest at the City Ground.
