Ipswich Town expect to appoint Paul Lambert as manager before facing Millwall

Ipswich expect to confirm Paul Lambert as their new manager before facing Millwall in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday, Sky Sports News understands.

Lambert entered talks with Ipswich on Thursday and Sky Sports News understands the 49-year-old will be in the stands watching on when they take on Millwall on Saturday.

It is understood that details regarding the club’s backroom staff are still to be worked out before an announcement can be made.

Ipswich have confirmed that head of coaching and player development Bryan Klug will take caretaker charge of the team for Saturday’s fixture at The Den.

Lambert, who was manager of Ipswich’s fierce rivals Norwich City from 2009 until 2012 and guiding them into the Premier League, has been out of club management since he was sacked by Stoke in May.

Former manager Hurst lost his job after less than six months in charge along with his long-term assistant Chris Doig following Wednesday’s 2-0 defeat to Leeds.

The Tractor Boys sit at the bottom of the Championship having won just once in 14 matches so far this season, losing seven.
