Blues boss on three points and three debutants

Paul Lambert thought Luke Matheson and Troy Parrott had an excellent impact as the pair made their debuts in the 2-0 victory over Blackpool this afternoon.

Luke played the full 90 minutes at Portman Road, while Troy also started but departed in the second half as goals from Alan Judge and Luke Woolfenden saw Blues to victory.

Josh Harrop, who is loan at the Club from Preston for the remainder of the season, also made his debut as a second-half substitute.

"I thought we were very good," Paul told iFollow Ipswich.

"We created plenty of chances, and could have had one more in the first half as Freddie's (Sears) goal that was ruled out was actually onside.

"Some of the football was good and Parrott did really well up front. He showed some excellent movement and footwork.

"If he progresses the way I think he will then Tottenham could have a very good player on their hands.

"Then Luke was also excellent. He doesn't look old enough to ride a scooter but he is a diamond of a kid.

"He got better as the game went on and did a really good job for us today. I'm really pleased with how the pair performed.

"Josh is also an exciting one. We didn't see too much of him today but when he gets some more game time we will see the best of him."
