It’s smash and Grabban
Nottm F 2 Ipswich 0
LEWIS GRABBAN’S £6million summer switch from Bournemouth to Forest is proving a brilliant piece of business after he racked up another deadly double.
The striker’s firsthalf brace gave him a staggering 15 goals in his last 15 appearances and kept Aitor Karanka’s men firmly in the thick of the promotion race. Karanka, who saw veteran skipper Michael Dawson forced off with a hamstring injury, said: “Lewis is exactly the kind of character I like because he always wants to improve.”
But Ipswich look dead and buried even before the Christmas decorations go up. Paul Lambert is yet to win a game since arriving at the end of October and said: “We need some help in January but you never ever give up.”
