Bowds set to face former side

11 December 2015

Dean Bowditch has netted in each of the Dons’ last two home games and he’ll be hoping to make it three in three against his former club, Ipswich Town, on Saturday.

The forward began his career at Portman Road and made 75 appearances for the Tractor Boys while scoring eight goals, including a hat-trick on his home debut against Watford.

“I’ll always have a fondness for Ipswich,” Bowditch told reddot. “I was there from the age of 10 and I left when I was 21 so I was there for a long time – it’s the club I grew up at.

“They helped me develop into the player I am today. They’ve produced a lot of good players and I think that helped me at the time - I had some great players around me and that’s why I enjoyed it so much.”

You can read the full interview with Dean in Saturday's edition of reddot, which will be available for £3 from sellers around the ground and at the Box Office on Saturday. Bowditch talks in-depth about his time at Portman Road as well as the Dons' current form and their plan to return to winning ways.

“At home we’re playing some fantastic stuff. We’ve seen how well we can play against the likes of Hull City here. We have to take confidence from that and believe we can get back to that, starting on Saturday.”

“The last couple of games we’ve been below par and we’ve got to bounce back from it. We always work hard here and we always stick together. The lads are still smiling and we’re still training well.
