Paul Lambert says his Ipswich side are good enough to ‘easily’ get themselves out of trouble at the bottom of the Championship.

New Tractor Boys boss Lambert has overseen two creditable draws since taking charge at Portman Road but the East Anglian outfit remain rooted to the bottom of the table.

They return to action following the international break on Friday night when they host promotion-chasing West Brom and Lambert is confident they will soon begin to move up the table after being impressed with the points earned against Preston and Reading.

The former Aston Villa, Norwich and Stoke City manager admits the unpredictability of the second tier means you cannot take anything for granted and says their worrying five-point deficit (Reading, Millwall, Hull and Bolton are all on 16 points above them, five ahead of Town) can easily be overturned.

When asked if he feels Ipswich can get out of trouble, he said: ‘Nobody knows, that’s the great question, but one thing I do know is that we’ll give it a right good go and if we keep doing what we’re doing we’ll get out of it, without a doubt.

‘Five points is nothing really. The turnaround is easily made up within a week, that can be made up. We have to start to win but we’re playing well enough to win.

‘You can never predict a result but one thing I can be 100 per cent sure about is that we’ll be ready for games.’

With Lambert’s comments in mind, punters may choose to use their free bet to back Ipswich to secure a much-needed win over West Brom on Friday.
