“Teams don’t play like that at the bottom of the table. We were terrific"

Paul Lambert heaped praise on his players after Town more than matched promotion chasing West Brom at the Hawthorns.

Jon Nolan’s second-half header gave Blues a point after Stefan Johansen’s heavily deflected free-kick had given Albion a fourth minute lead.

“We were outstanding. We out passed them. We outplayed them. We outworked them and we should have won the game. The players deserved to have won,” the Town boss told iFollow Ipswich.

“Teams don’t play like that at the bottom of the table. We were terrific.

“The game plan worked well. We took the ball and passed it and showed a lot of courage and you have to do that as a footballer.

“The support was phenomenal again. I don’t like the position we are in but there is a lot to be positive about for the future.”

Town remain 12 points adrift of safety with 10 games to play but Paul added:
“We are not giving up, no way. There is a still a long way to go. The way we are playing, anything can happen.

“With the fantastic support we have as well, you just never know.”
