Ipswich: Fans unhappy with Paul Lambert’s tactical setup after defeat to Rotherham

Ipswich were knocked off the top of League One last night after a 0-2 home defeat to Rotherham, their second loss in four days following the same scoreline against Accrington Stanley last weekend.

Their official Twitter account @IpswichTown tweeted the full-time score, which included an image detailing that Matt Crooks scored both goals for the visitors at Portman Road.

Paul Lambert’s team had won eight of their first 11 league games this season and drawn the other three prior to Sunday, but two consecutive defeats have seen them relinquish top spot to Peterborough after Darren Ferguson’s side thrashed Accrington 4-0 last night to move to the summit on goal difference, as per Sky Sports.

Ipswich lined up in a 4-1-3-2 formation against the Millers, with Lambert deviating from the 3-4-1-2 that he had been using in recent matches.

These Ipswich fans on Twitter were critical of the manager’s tactical setup against Rotherham and many called for him to revert to the 4-4-2 which brought the Tractor Boys multiple wins earlier in the season:

Do you think Lambert should revert to a conventional 4-4-2 from now on? Share your views in the comments section below!
