The experienced midfielder, rejuvenated under Lambert’s management suffered the injury at Playford Road this week and missed this afternoon’s loss at Stoke City after suffering cartilage damage.

In what is a huge blow to Lambert and Ipswich, the Blues boss confirmed the midfielder will spend significant time on the sidelines.

“He’s going to be out for a couple of months I think,” said Lambert.

“I put Trevoh (Chalobah) in there and I thought he was excellent, but that’s one area of the pitch where I think we need a little bit of help.”

Speaking prior to this afternoon’s game, Lambert said: “It’s a blow because he’s playing ever so well for us. He’s been brilliant. As I said before, his range of passing has been at the really, really high standard that I look for.

“Hopefully it’s not too long. I’ll find out later today probably.”
