Blackburn forward Simeon Jackson is keen for his side to return to winning ways when they take on Ipswich at Portman Road on Tuesday.

The Canada international joined Rovers on a free transfer from Barnsley during the January transfer window and he opened his account for the Lancashire outfit in their 2-1 home defeat to Leeds on Saturday.

That loss was only the second that Paul Lambert’s side have suffered in their last five league games and Jackson wants to return to winning ways when they take on Mick McCarthy’s play-off chasing Ipswich.

Jackson said: “We keep turning out, we go again on Tuesday and try and get something there. Everybody has been doing really well, performances have been excellent, so our focus will be on getting the results and getting as many points as we can.”

The match at Portman Road will be Rovers sixth game in 20 days, but former Norwich striker Jackson believes the team have coped well with their gruelling fixture schedule.

He added: “It has been relentless but that is what this league is about. We’ve coped with it well and got some good results and hopefully by the time the games cool down we’ll be in a good position.

The Blue and Whites are currently 16th in the Championship standings, but they could move up two places with a victory in Suffolk.

Lambert’s side are on offer at 3.20 to win the match, whilst Ipswich are available at 2.38 and the draw is priced at 3.20.
