Ipswich Town ran out 3-1 winnings over Southend United this afternoon.

The Blues' unbeaten start came to a crashing end earlier this week with a pair of 2-0 defeats, firstly at Accrington and then at home to Rotherham.

They now take on a Southend side managed by England icon Sol Campbell and Icelander Hermann Hreidarsson, a vital cog in the Ipswich side which finished fifth in the Premier League in 2000/01.

"We have to," Lambert said, when asked if he simply sees his side's two defeats as a blip. "We have to go and try and win. We'll have a massive following there again.

"As I said before, there will be bumps and bruises along the way, but we've started really well and we've still got a game in hand, so we're in a good position.

"If someone said to me in the beginning of the season we'd be in this position I'd say that was OK."
