“I’ve said before, we are going to get bumps and bruises along the way"

Paul Lambert knocked back any suggestion of doom and gloom and said Blues will be ‘up there’ come the end of the season.

Town went down to a second successive league defeat against Rotherham at Portman Road but still sit joint top of the table and with a game in hand.

“We started really well but then got caught out with their first shot at goal,” the Town boss told iFollow Ipswich.

“We tried to get back into it but credit to them, they defended well and caused us a few problems on the break and we didn’t really hurt them enough.

“I’ve said before, we are going to get bumps and bruises along the way. We are sitting joint top though so I’m not going to be too critical.

“We have lost two games in succession. That is what happens in football. I’m not having any doom and gloom talk though. It’s a hard league but we will be up there, that’s for sure and we will go again on Saturday at Southend.

“There were some positives with Will Keane back out there and Emyr [Huws]. There were others back from injury as well and we will need everybody.”
