'I can’t give him a bigger compliment than say that you know what you are going to get out of him every week'
Paul Lambert has paid tribute to Luke Chambers as the Town skipper looks set to make his 300th appearance for the Club at the weekend.
Ironically, the City Ground will be the venue for Chambo’s milestone, with the 33-year-old having joined Blues from Nottingham Forest in the summer of 2012.
“To play 300 games for one club is a brilliant achievement,” the Town boss told iFollow Ipswich.
“Not many players in the modern game stay for that length of time at a club and make that number of appearances.
“It shows his consistency and I can’t give him a bigger compliment than say that you know what you are going to get out of him every week.
“He has the respect of everyone at the Club and rightly so. He’s a humble guy and that has stood him in good stead. He is very steady in his temperament and that is a major part of being a footballer.
“We have a young group of players here and they look to him as well. I’m delighted to have him here. He’s been excellent for me.”
