Ipswich Town drew 1-1 with Coventry City this afternoon.

The two sides met a week ago in the FA Cup, with that game setting up a replay on Tuesday, but now the two promotion rivals meet in the league.

"No, none whatsoever," Paul Lambert said, when asked if last week's game impacts this.

"It's a different game. It's totally different, so we'll decide what we do.

"It's not great when you play somebody three times in 10 days. It's not great, but we try and know as much as we can before we play them.

"They're a good side and a good football side. It's a strange environment because it's not their ground and we have to go back up there again, and then we've got them on Tuesday again.

"Hopefully it'll be another good game and hopefully we get one step further."
