‘Lambert got this very wrong’ – Plenty of Ipswich Town fans react to their first defeat of the campaign

Injury-hit League One leaders Ipswich Town fell to defeat in the league for the first time this season against a fired-up Accrington Stanley.

Town boss Paul Lambert was forced to juggle his line-up with the suspended James Wilson joined by injured trio Kane Vincent-Young, Flynn Downes and James Norwood on the sidelines and Accrington took full advantage to earn all three points through a Colby Bishop double.

Despite the disappointing 2-0 loss, Ipswich stay top of the table by one point with a game in hand on closest rivals Wycombe and host a decent Rotherham United side on Wednesday when they will be looking to get their promotion push back on track.


After the disappointment of last season’s relegation from the Championship, the Tractor Boys have once again got used to that winning feeling, so the fans reaction to the result on social media was reasonably balanced.

Indeed, the reason some supporters gave for the loss was the attendance of the Sky cameras; this was the fifteenth defeat on the bounce for Ipswich in a live televised game.

Here is a selection of responses to the result on Twitter.
