Ipswich Town face a near-impossible task to retain their Championship status, with the Tractor Boys at the foot of the table, 11 points adrift of safety and with only nine matches of their season remaining.
Until it is mathematically impossible though, manager Paul Lambert will believe that his side can stay up, but he would be naive if he didn’t start to think about life in League One.
But how will Ipswich get on in League One if they do go down?
“They’ll have to rebuild.
“They would have to have a complete clear out in the summer and it could take some time to adjust to life in League One.
“I think they’d struggle initially and slowly find their feet.”
“Aside from the top six this season, it’s been a pretty poor league.
“Few sides stand out and the big clubs have thrived.
“Ipswich are a big club, they’d be right up there.”
“I think at first it’d be a culture shock and a struggle.
“It depends how much money they will throw at it to try and get back up.
“I think it would be a mediocre start, but then a strong finish and a play-off place at least.
“Although I think they would struggle to get back up at the first attempt.
