Watching the game, I'm staggered that West Brom are that high, maybe Barnes was a huge miss for them? The argument that the Championship is only getting stronger is a load of absolute rubbish, I'm sure we were a good 8 or 9 points off the top two at this stage in the playoff season, but Leeds are only on 53 points and are top after 28 games which isn't actually that impressive

Bolton, on the other hand worked hard and put in a real shift. Fortunately, they're completely toothless up top and wouldn't have scored if they were still playing now. Don't worry though, our defence will find a way to concede at least two

Looking to this weekend, Ipswich have Villa away, Rotherham have Leeds at home and then Wigan are at Forest. Expect Forest and Villa to win but have a feeling Rotherham may sneak something to Leeds

Plenty of time for that game to turn around and Leeds losing is always hilarious but oxf*rd me, why Rotherham? If they do manage to get the win it makes the Bolton game so much more important.

Defeats for all the shit around us. Very good news

Defeat at Bolton wouldn’t be the disaster it could have been now. A win and things would be looking a lot better

Well yeah, obvs would be a poor result psychologically.

Points wise would have been an absolute killer to lose and be 5 points from safety again though - at least whatever the result we’ll be a max of 2 points still

Just heard Lambert's press conference - says Ipswich are massively improved, he loves watching them play and they are moving forward.... :D

Ipswich look absolutely toothless. on this showing they are stone wall to finish bottom. dreadful. Norwich don`t look much better. Seen better local derbies over Prospect park.

Paul Lambert sent to the stands, along with Norwich's Chris Domogalla, who didn't appear to do much wrong.

What a season for the carrot crunchers if they could win the same League Ipswich finished bottom of.

Wouldn't get a lot better than that.

This relegation scrap is I can see quickly becoming a scrap for the last spot between ourselves and Rotherham and then maybe Wigan and Millwall. Definitely feels like Rotherham blew a golden opportunity yesterday.

Yep like we did at Bolton

3-0 defeat to the local rivals ain’t going to do much for the Ipswich cause. Can’t see much hope for them

I thought Ipswich looked OK today, lots of fight there, just Pukki is a class above in terms of finishing. I wouldn't rule Ipswich out just yet, they've got three very winnable games coming up in the next four, us, Stoke and Wigan. The next few weeks are certainly going to be interesting at the bottom of the table, lots of teams at the bottom playing each other
