Ipswich Town will be looking to end their dismal run when they take on fellow promotion hopefuls Fleetwood Town at Portman Road this evening.
The Tractor Boys have fallen away quite dramatically after an excellent start to the season and they go into tonight’s clash sitting in ninth position and five points away from the play-offs.
A late 2-1 defeat at Blackpool last time out made it five defeats in their last seven and Ipswich have won just four league games since the end of November.
Therefore, with Fleetwood one of the teams above the Suffolk outfit, it is a huge fixture for Paul Lambert’s men and the club sent out a tweet this morning looking ahead to the game.
Town return to action this evening as @ftfc make the trip to Portman Road.

However, it’s fair to say it didn’t get the response that they would have probably hoped for, with many fans using it to continue criticism towards Lambert and the players.
Here we look at some of the comments…
If no win tonight, playoffs are out of the question – Lambert should walk out of respect for the club, stick the U23s in for the remaining games along with an enthused coaching staff
It can’t be any worse – Id rather watch U23s fight and learn than a senior squad flounder to 8th

I honestly don't see us winning, Fleetwood have a way of playing which suits their players & they don't venture too far away from it, We've had the squad rotation policy, Constant formation changes & the way we are playing shows that we don't know what to do & that lands on PL

It still hurts from Saturday to be even remotely excited by this, sorry.
