Lankester and Nolan earn plaudits following win over the Gas

Paul Lambert paid tribute to Jack Lankester and Jon Nolan after the duo made key contributions in Town’s 2-0 victory at Bristol Rovers.

Jack, a second half substitute, saw his in-swinging cross headed into the back of the net by Rovers defender Max Ehmer with 10 minutes remaining at the Memorial Stadium.

He turned provider nine minutes later, playing in Nolo who rounded a defender before coolly slotting his left-footed strike into the bottom corner.

"His [Jack’s] left foot is very good," Paul told iFollow Ipswich. "That was his first league game in nearly two years so big congratulations go to him."

"I thought Jon Nolan was superb. He is really on the top of his game at the minute. The run from Nolo for the goal, beating his guy and the goalkeeper was great.

"He was absolutely brilliant. He’s a really good player. The way he is playing at the minute is top class."

Paul’s full post-match interview from Bristol Rovers is available to watch on iFollow Ipswich.
