Ipswich Town start the new week with a buzz of optimism around Portman Road, following a 1-0 win over Wigan at the weekend and though still rooted to the bottom of the Championship, they have cut the deficit to nearest rivals Bolton to four points.
The win though has not stopped Tractor Boys manager Paul Lambert looking to East Anglian rivals Norwich City, with him considering making a move for out of favour winger Ben Marshall, as reported by the Sun on Sunday (16 December, Page 59).
Marshall has only made five appearances for the Canaries this season, and Lambert will be hoping he can secure the player on loan to help in their relegation scrap.
So would Marshall be a good addition to the Ipswich squad?
It would be a class signing – but I am sure they would face competition for his signature.
Millwall are another team struggling, and you would fully expect them to move for their former loan player from last year, too.
If Paul Lambert was able to sign the winger, it would for sure give Ipswich a chance of getting out of the bottom three.
Yes, a superb signing.
Marshall was excellent for Millwall last season and they must be a bit gutted they lost out in the summer.
He’s not been given a chance to shine at Norwich, but he’d be a great capture for Ipswich.
He’s direct, experienced and understands the lower reaches of the division.
It could be great business for Ipswich.
We saw what a difference Marshall made at Millwall last season and even half that impact at Ipswich would be big for Paul Lambert’s side.
The deal is definitely something the Tractor Boys must be pushing for.
