Mr Reliable David Wright admits he is a bit worried about where his future lies.

The full back is out of contract at the end of this season and his Portman Road future looked unsure at the start of the campaign having been frozen out of the first team. But he took his chance when manager Roy Keane recalled him to the Ipswich side, and scored the only goal in Town’s first win of the season against Derby.

Wright is playing as well as anybody in the Blues side, and he hopes it will be enough to earn him a new deal pretty soon. He told the club site: ‘I have to play well, work hard and stay in the team and hopefully that will bring its rewards because I definitely want to stay here. I love the club.

‘I love the area and so do my family but it can play on your mind when you have only got six months left on your contract. When it hits you is when you get asked to put down your children’s names down for school – things like that. Not knowing my future is a bit scary. Not knowing my kids’ future is worse.’

The former Wigan man however admitted that he can’t let it get to him and has to focus on his own game: ‘You have to get on with it and I can’t let it affect me. If things don’t go as I hope they do, then I’m going to have to uproot the family and try and get them settled somewhere else and the whole process starts again.’
