Ipswich failed to score or win for a third game in succession following their goalless draw with Oxford United on Tuesday.
Paul Lambert would have been desperate for a reaction from his side after their home defeats to both Hull City and Charlton in recent days, but the Tractor Boys managed just one shot on target throughout the 90 minutes at the Kassam Stadium – which came in the closing stages.
The point was enough to keep Ipswich sitting 5th in the League One standings, but they’re now three adrift of the top-two places – which could increase later this evening, with a host of their promotion rivals in action.
Quiz: Which club did Ipswich Town sign each of these 25 players from?
Ipswich endured a similar run of form last season when Lambert’s men went from four points clear at the top of the League One standings, to finishing 11th-place following the suspension amid the Coronavirus.
It means that the Portman Road outfit have now won just 12 of their previous 36 League One games – which has prompted a major reaction from the Tractor Boys faithful towards Lambert.

I don’t recognise the team or the performances he’s talking about . I really wish I did . If he thinks it’ll take longer to get promoted just say it and stop the nonsense.

Hang in there Boss. With the injuries we’ve got, by sticking together we’ll come through this sticky patch. The Kids will only grow stronger. Pompey, Sunderland are just to name a few who are also struggling, it was never going to be easy. #itfc

Totally deluded . As soon as the phones open I’m cancelling my season ticket. I tried to stay loyal but while this clown is in charge I won’t be coming back

The look of a man who lashes out at everyone but himself because he knows he'll never work as a football manager again. Get the worst manager in our history out the door.

We need to go up this year. This guy doesn't seem to realise this neither does our owner. We could be stuck down there for years. And hes delighted with 0-0 against Oxford. Those young players would play better under someone else! #LambertOut

22 seconds I managed to watch this for before turning off. This guy is the biggest delusional clown in football. He’s actually at the complete wrong end of the stick on every subject. League One and we don’t even get near the opponents goal – how is this ‘good football’?
