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.”
