They are top two contenders but we're ready for the challenge says Paul
Paul Lambert expects West Brom to be in the shake-up for the automatic promotion places come the end of the season but isn’t fazed by the challenge Town face at the weekend.
The Baggies sit seven points adrift of the top two going into Town’s visit to the Hawthorns on Saturday but Blues’ boss told iFollow Ipswich: “They have a Premier League squad.
“It’s incredible, the strength in depth. They have kept most of their players from last season.
“Darren [Moore, manager] has done really well there to keep all the players there happy and all that goes with that.
“I think they will be there or thereabouts for the top two places come the end of the season.
“It will be a big challenge for us. We know that but we will have another big support there and we’ve got nothing to lose. We go into every game the same - to win it.
“Performance wise, I can’t fault the players. We have been playing well but it’s in both boxes where we have come undone.”
