Watch: Lambert on derby day brawl, Sears injury and more

Ipswich Town boss Paul Lambert met the media ahead of his club’s midweek clash with Derby County – and it made for fascinating viewing.
Lambert spoke at length about the derby day brawl, reports that Norwich coach Ed Wootten challenged him to a fight and that Town are to complain about his treatment by a Norwich City steward during the brawl.
He also spoke about Freddie Sears injury – the club’s leading scorer out for at least nine months with a knee injury – and revealed that tomorrow’s clash with Derby will come “a little bit too early” for defender James Collins.
Lambert’s men remain rock-bottom of the Championship after their 3-0 derby day defeat to Norwich on Sunday, with just 15 games left to somehow make up a deficit of nine points and pull off the greatest escape from relegation in league history.
And this week is huge for the Blues – they host Derby on Wednesday, followed by Stoke on Saturday, and really need a return of at least four points if they are to retain any hope of avoiding the drop.
