A late point secured at the weekend will have provided a slight moment of relief for Ipswich Town manager Paul Lambert, but his side remain in a precarious position, nine points from safety ahead of the trip to Wigan at the weekend.
The Ipswich equaliser came via a 92nd minute goal from loan striker Will Keane, a goal that took the 26-year-old to, two in seven since his January arrival from Championship rival’s Hull City.
So has Keane proven to be a good signing so far at Ipswich?
“He’s scored a few so yeah, he’s been a decent capture.
“They looked a bit light up front and although they’re still doomed, he’s pulled his weight.
“Maybe if he’d joined in August they wouldn’t be in the mess they are now.”
“He’s surprised me.
“I didn’t think that he’d be a very good signing for Lambert’s side, but he’s proved me wrong.
“If he can continue this impressive run of form, then he’ll keep their faint survivial chances alive.”
“He scored an important goal at the weekend, but it has been an underwhelming signing so far.
“His past goalscoring record isn’t the best, and it was a move that raised eyebrows when he first joined.
“It’s going to be a very interesting relegation battle.”
“In seven matches he has two goals to his name, and both have been important.
“Keane has earned the club four points on his own scoring the winner against Rotherham in his Championship debut for Ipswich.
“And getting Paul Lambert’s side a vital point with a last-minute equaliser in the home game with Stoke this past weekend.
“He’s been a great signing so far, but I think it is has come too late for them to survive this season.”
