Ipswich Town manager Paul Lambert was joined by a familiar face as he watched the Blues’ Under 23s in action against Nottingham Forest this evening.
The Scot and his staff were joined by former Norwich City striker Grant Holt, who of course played such a big role as Lambert's Canaries won back-to-back promotions from League One to the Premier League between 2009 and 2011.
The forward scored 53 goals during those two promotion seasons for Lambert, before adding 17 more following promotion to the top flight.
He enjoyed his games against Ipswich, too, netting a hat-trick in a 4-1 victory over the Blues in 2010/11 before playing his part in a 5-1 victory in Suffolk later in the campaign.

Holt is also a former team-mate of Ipswich coach Matt Gill, who was with the Canaries as a player between 2009 and 2011.
Holt, now 38, was in Suffolk at the weekend as he netted in Wroxham's 3-1 victory over Carlos Edwards' Woodbridge Town.
Since retiring from the professional game, Holt has been coaching part-time in Norwich's youth set-up while he has also taken up wrestling.
Also in attendance for the Under 23s' game was captain Luke Chambers and first-teamers Janoi Donacien, Luke Woolfenden, Flynn Downes and Myles Kenlock.
