"They are still a good team, they still have some good players there,"
Paul Lambert has warned that Wigan will be a dangerous opponent for Town to begin their League One season against on Sunday [13 September].
The Latics, who would've finished 13th in the Championship had it not been for a 12-point deduction due to entering administation, have sold some key players in the Summer while manager Paul Cook also departed the DW Stadium.
John Sheridan was appointed as Wigan's new boss on Thursday evening ahead of Sunday's televised Portman Road meeting of the two sides.
"I know they’ve had a bit of turmoil up there with some guys moving and the manager leaving," Paul told iFollow Ipswich. "With the administration, it can’t be a nice place to work at.
"We have to play our way, we have to play our game and not worry about what happens there. They are still a good team, they still have some good players there.
"Lee Evans, who I worked with at Wolves, is a really good player. It’s still a dangerous game. We have to play as well as we have been and hopefully get a result."
