Very odd how Lambert is nowhere to be seen this week, O'Neill did the pre match live interview and has also done the other interviews too.

Was there an official explanation why Lambert didn’t do the interview or why he wasn’t around?

To be fair.... there’s not a lot you can get from these pre-match interviews. Just updates on injuries.

It was Stuart Taylor who did the interview. PL went to Scotland after the death of Billy McNeil.

Lambert was in Edinburgh for a memorial service to McNeil hence why he seemed unavailable at Town meetings just recent. As an aside, taking a moments reflection to honor the latter's passing. Had forgotten the news as been too busy but a player of that stature, you got to allow the required acknowledgements. There's a game underway right now in actual fact, hope for a eventual victory to all but seal the SPL Championship. It would be a fitting victory to the occasion. See link below for relevant news and information.

This was a link for the Ronnie Simpson memorial in 2004, not McNeil, but sounds very plausible that Lambert headed back to Scotland for a memorial service.

I've now counted 4 mistakes by Chambers, and their goal was because Chambers was far to slow in getting back, he never made the effort, he will be a massive liability in League 1 next season, should never have given him an extension of a 2 year contract, I would put Luke Wolfenden in his place any day of the week, much stronger and more alert.

Cole skuse is playing really well in back 3, makes chambers look like schoolboy defending

Chambers hasn't been good, I agree but that goal was Bishop's fault - he switched off and left his man to run behind him... we just keep giving the ball away and they will punish us when we do - nsiala has been very huilty of it too!

It was indeed Bishops fault. And then the bloke who scored got away from Skuse. But Bishop switched off badly.

So many bad passes again. And I really think signing Keane - if we could - would be a waste of money. I feel sorry for him but he's never going to stay fit. I don't think he ever has, has he?

He’s our best defender. Could be his new position.

No shots on target unless you count that header at the end.
