Socceroo winger Tommy Oar feels he is slowly adapting to the physical rigours of English Championship football as he tries to work his way into Ipswich Town's first team.
Oar joined the Tractor Boys earlier this season after leaving FC Utrecht but has so far had to be content with a role off the bench for Mick McCarthy’s side.
The 24-year-old has only managed one start – against Jason Davidson’s Huddersfield – only to be replaced at half-time due to concussion.
Since then it’s been a waiting game for Oar, who admits he’s still adjusting to the physical demands required in English football.
“It’s a completely different style here to what I was used to in Holland,” Oar told Ipswich’s official website.
“In Holland, they probably value possession more. In England, it’s more end to end, more physical, it’s more about strength and speed and I’m still adjusting to that.”
