Callum O’Hare is looking forward to the Sky Blues Emirates FA Cup tie against fellow Sky Bet League One side Ipswich Town and believes it will be a good test on Sunday afternoon.

Ipswich are currently in second place in the League One standings, three places above the Sky Blues, and play City on consecutive weekends with the two sides meeting in the league the following weekend.

O’Hare hopes City can bounce back from conceding late on in their last outing away at Sunderland to advance in the competition.

O’Hare said: “The FA Cup is a big competition, we’re all looking forward to it and everyone wants to do well.

“It’ll be a good test. They’re right up there in the league and doing well but so are we, so it should be a good test but hopefully we’ll come out on top.

“We don’t let previous results play on our minds. We just have to give it our all, we have conceded a few late goals, but it happens, we just have to move on now.

“I’m really enjoying it, we’re playing well as a team and everything is going well, we’re getting some good results now.

“Everyone is confident in the dressing room and we know what sort of team we are. Now we need to keep getting the results.”

The midfielder hopes to achieve promotion with the Sky Blues this season and wants to add more goals and assists to his game in order to get more minutes on the pitch.

“I want what everyone else wants to achieve – promotion.

“I feel like I’ve been doing well. I’d like to get some more goals and assists, but I’ve just got to keep doing what I can for the team.

“As a kid everyone just wants to play football, I’ve come here to get some minutes and I’m getting plenty. I just want to keep going now and get even more.

“It’s a bit frustrating when you’re not starting. I’ve had a little niggle and then the team has been playing really well which makes it tough to get back in the team.

“I’ve just got to keep working hard in training and hopefully do something that helps me stand out when I come off the bench.”

The 21-year-old started for the Sky Blues Under-23s in their win against Colchester United on Monday and set up Jamie Allen for City’s second goal.

O’Hare is also looking forward to the return of striker Max Biamou, who has served out his three-game suspension, with the Frenchman also featuring for the 23s on Monday.

“It’s a bit difficult to motivate yourself for games like that, but you have to get the minutes under your belt and get on with it and come out of it a better player.

“It was a good game, we were professional despite having a man sent off and still created some good chances and could have scored more goals.

“I’m looking forward to having Max back in the team. He’s a good player, you can see that from the goals he’s scored against Southampton and Peterborough.

“You always want to give chances to strikes like him as that’s their main job – to score goals. He’s been scoring some great goals and playing well so you’re always looking to pick him out.”
