“I said to the lads remember the atmosphere and if we can get that at our place next year, we will be in the fight"
Paul Lambert said Town were beaten by the best side he has seen in the Championship but wants Blues to take the memory of the Blades' celebrations as a motivation next season.
Goals from Scott Hogan and Jack O’Connell gave Sheffield United the win that takes them to the brink of promotion to the Premier League.
“For me they are the best team we have played over two games,” the Town boss told iFollow Ipswich.
“They deserve to go up, if that is what happens and congratulations to them but we didn’t capitulate.
“We had a lot of young players out there and I hope they learn from that experience and the atmosphere out there.
“I said to the lads remember the atmosphere and the way it is here and if we can get that at our place next year, we will be in the fight.
“I can’t fault the players. They stayed in the game for a long time and it was no disgrace. They are a really good side and we knew it was going to be difficult.
“It will be another difficult game against Leeds next week and then we can have a break and I think everyone at the Club needs that.”
