Ipswich Town were beaten 2-0 by Nottingham Forest at the City Ground this afternoon.

The Blues are looking to bounce back after they suffered a major blow in midweek, following their 3-2 home loss to Bristol City.

They now travel to a side who drew 5-5 with Aston Villa on Wednesday.

“You get games like that in the Championship and there are always games like that where the score is pretty happy,” manger Paul Lambert said. “I’m pretty sure it was exciting as well.

“Forest have invested heavily as well but we have to go there and try and win. My job is to try and go there on the front foot and try to win and I won’t change my way.

“We have a big crowd coming to support us and we’ll try and entertain them as well. We are going there with confidence to try and win.

“The only thing we’re missing are those wins. Everything else, from the level the lads were playing at to now, is really high.”

Captain Luke Chambers wants his Ipswich Town future sorted sooner rather than later but knows the club’s precarious position means he may have to be patient.
