Ipswich Town manager Paul Lambert has ‘put a little something behind the bar’ to thank fans for their support ahead of tomorrow’s clash with Bristol Rovers.

The Town boss has bought a drink for the first 125 fans to enter the Portman Road FanZone this weekend, as a gesture of thanks for their support this season and as an early Christmas gift.

He made a similar gesture prior to the opening home game of the season, against Sunderland in August, having previously paid for supporters to travel by coach to the Blues' away game at Blackburn Rovers in January out of his own pocket.

"It's just a thanks to everybody," Lambert said.

"The support I've had has been great, so I can't thank the supporters enough. This is just a little thank you.

"We don't play here again until Boxing Day so it's the last game before Christmas, so it's important for me to say thanks to them.

"It's just a gesture to say 'have a good Christmas' and thanks for what you've done."
