Ipswich Town may have struggled to attract decent crowds for their home games recently... but there's no reason for the atmosphere to be flat according to new boss Paul Lambert.
Ahead of their return to SkyBet Championship action against West Bromwich Albion, Town's manager met with supporter groups to discuss what they can do to get the stadium rocking.
Just over 15,000 fans turned out for Lambert's first game in charge against Preston in early November, but the Blues expect a crowd of around 20,000 on Friday night (November 23).
Lambert felt it was valuable to meet with fans and is keen to ensure they establish a stronger connection with the club.
Lambert recognises the Sir Bobby Robson Stand, known as the North Stand to Ipswich regulars, is where the liveliest fans gravitate at Portman Road, and he wants fans to make it even livelier.
Lambert may be seeking his first win in charge as Ipswich, but Blues' fans have yet to see a home victory as they sit five points adrift at the bottom of the Championship.
If they manage to get the three points against Darren Moore's men it would only be Ipswich's third win this calendar year, and Lambert admits things have to change quickly.
