MANAGER Paul Lambert has penned a new four-year contract extension with Ipswich Town.

The former Colchester United boss has agreed fresh terms that will keep him at Portman Road until 2025.

The 50-year-old, who was previously contracted for a further 18 months, took charge in October 2018.

The news was released earlier this afternoon - shortly before Lambert watched his side draw 1-1 at fellow high-fliers Wycombe Wanderers.

Top-scorer James Norwood headed his ninth goal of the season to put the visitors ahead, ten minutes into the second half.

However, David Wheeler soon looped in a leveller for the Chairboys.

Overall, a draw was a fair result.

The Blues made a strong start to the second half and looked the most likely scorers, prior to their well-worked opener.

Luke Garbutt whipped in a quick free-kick from the left and Norwood capitalised with an unstoppable header that flashed past keeper Ryan Allsop.

However, Wycombe, who had the better of the late chances, equalised when a long ball forward was flicked on by substitute Adebayo Akinfenwa.

Wheeler got on the end of it and sent the ball spinning into the Town net.

While their performance was largely positive, Town were disappointed to see their winless run stretch to eight games in League One.

They are now without a victory in all competitions over 90 minutes in 12.

The Blues dropped to fifth in the table and are next in Trophy action at Exeter City on Saturday afternoon.
