Ipswich to complain over Paul Lambert treatment after accusations against Norwich steward

Ipswich will complain to the Football Association over the way a Norwich City steward treated manager Paul Lambert on Sunday, Sky Sports News understands.

Lambert was sent off, along with Norwich head of performance Chris Domogalla, after an incident seconds before half-time in a fiery East Anglian derby at Carrow Road.

A melee involving a number of players and the two teams’ coaching staff was sparked by a late challenge from Ipswich midfielder Jon Nolan.

The Ipswich complaint will allege FA that a home steward physically pushed Lambert backwards as officials moved in to try and break up the confrontation.

Sky Sports News has been informed that Ipswich also feel the wrong Norwich coach was sent off amid accusations that Canaries goalkeeping coach Ed Wootten challenged Lambert to a fight.

The FA is expected to inform both clubs later on Tuesday of possible charges for breaching their discipline rules.

Norwich moved back to the top of the Sky Bet Championship table thanks to the win, which came courtesy of an early goal from Onel Hernandez and two second half Teemu Pukki strikes.

Ipswich remain rooted to the bottom of the table, some nine points adrift of safety with 15 games remaining.
