We`ll be defensive at Emirates - Delaney

13 January 2011 04:00
Ipswich defender Damien Delaney admits his side will "park the bus" in front of goal at the Emirates Stadium in a fortnight as they look to hang on to their Carling Cup semi-final lead over Arsenal. Tamas Priskin's goal gave the npower Championship side a shock 1-0 win at Portman Road on Wednesday night against a strong Gunners side. Arsene Wenger's side remain favourites to secure a place in the Wembley final, but Delaney is just grateful to have something to hold onto ahead of the second leg. He said: "Arsenal weren't at their best, but in the tie, we have to be above our best and pray to God that they are somewhere below average if we're going to get close to them. That's what happened. "We'll go and park the bus in front of the goal at the Emirates, like Jose Mourinho said. "We've got something to hold on to. They'll be breaking out all the big guns to do well after not winning any trophies for so long. When you've got something to hold onto, you can get another huge performance out of you."
