Former Coventry City goalkeeper, now at Ipswich, will be in goal for the Tractor Boys this afternoon after first choice 'keeper Brian Murphy broke his ankle last week.

The Hungarian international goalkeeper Fulop was on loan at Coventry from Spurs during the 2005/6 season where he played 31 games for the Sky Blues. He made his debut in a 1-0 win over Luton in October 2005.

Fulop recalled, “I enjoyed my time at Coventry, especially as it was their first season at the Ricoh Arena.”

 “Now I’m looking forward to playing there again. They are a big, physical team, and they are very dangerous from set pieces, but we will be ready for that,” added Fulop.

As for his current club Ipswich, Fulop said, “Just because it’s the start of a new year, it doesn’t mean to say that we start with a clean-slate, because half the season has already gone, but we can start making up for the bad run that we have had, and I think we are capable of winning a lot of games on the trot."

“Of course our bad run hurts, massively. Yet we were unbeaten for the first few games that I was here (from the start of last season), and at the time I was even thinking about automatic promotion, which I’m sure a lot of our fans were also thinking of. The squad is still similar to the start of the season."
