Ipswich Town boss Paul Lambert has delivered an exciting update on the form of Kayden Jackson, who has been impressing over the course of the international break.
Former boss, Paul Hurst, moved to bring Jackson to Portman Road in the summer, with the striker arriving at the Championship club on the back of helping Accrington Stanley achieve promotion in League Two.
However, it’s been a slow start to life in the second-tier for the 24-year-old, who has just one goal and one assist in 16 appearances.
Lambert has now issued an update on Jackson’s form over the course of the international break, with the striker impressing in a practice match.
“Kayden needed a game where he hit the back of the net and the hat-trick (in the behind closed doors friendly) will do him a world of good,” Lambert told Ipswich’s official media.
Ipswich currently find themselves cut adrift at the foot of the Championship after a tough start to the season.
The Tractor Boys have picked up just 11 points, leaving them five points adrift of safety after only 17 fixtures.
Lambert will be looking for his first victory as Ipswich boss this Friday, but faces a tough task, with Town going up against West Bromwich Albion, who hit Leeds for four before the international break.
This is an exciting update for Ipswich’s supporters to hear, as Jackson has the potential to have a real impact in this side.
The youngster has struggled to adapt, but goals will give him confidence, whatever circumstance they have come in.
Lambert will be turning to the 24-year-old to find this touch against the high-flying Baggies.
