Many Ipswich Town fans have reacted to a superb solo goal from U23 winger Armando Dobra in the 1-1 draw with Cardiff City on Monday afternoon.
Life at Portman Road this season did start well but form of late has seen Ipswich out of the play-off places, and pressure is firmly on Paul Lambert to turn things around over the next few weeks.
Two wins in nine games for Ipswich has them looking ahead to the weekend fixture with league leaders Coventry City as a must-win game.
But discontent fans did have something to cheer about on Monday afternoon after footage was released of Dobra’s goal for the club’s U23 side against Cardiff.

Dobra arrived at Ipswich in 2017 and signed his first professional charge in February 2019.
Having progressed well through the club’s academy, Dobra has been enjoying life in the U23 setup this term, whilst also gaining three appearances in the first team.

Capable of playing in the central attacking midfield areas, Dobra can also play on either flank – something he has done this season both at club level and on the international stage for Albania U19.
Following the footage, countless Ipswich fans have called on boss Lambert to give him a further chance in the first team fold.
Show this to Lambert please

Start him in midfield we need some players who actually want to take the ball forward

Mystery as to why the likes of Nolan starts instead of giving Dobra a chance

Hes a bit to creative for our current style of play
