Wickham Fine to Face QPR
Monday, 21st Feb 2011 14:02
Town boss Paul Jewell says he expects striker Connor Wickham to be fine for Tuesday’s trip to QPR despite turning his ankle in the second half of the Blues’ 1-1 draw with Hull City on Saturday.
Jewell said: “Connor went over on his ankle, but he’s fine. He was in yesterday and we trained this morning, so he’ll be fine.”
Skipper David Norris will again miss out and is unlikely to be fit for Saturday’s visit by Portsmouth: “I spoke to him before I came down here and I think he’s definitely struggling for tomorrow.
"He’s not too bad, he’s just got a little bit of a problem with his ankle, his knee's fine, but his ankle’s giving him more of a problem. I would think Saturday might be a bit tight.”
The Blues have no new injuries, although full-back or midfielder Shane O’Connor is not yet ready to return to the squad after his bout of appendicitis.
Keeper Brian Murphy is likely to be back in around a month after his broken ankle, while midfielder Alan Quinn is continuing his recovery after his second operation on the groin problem which has sidelined him for the entire season.
The Blues boss is likely to make one change to his team with Jimmy Bullard expected to return, probably for Saturday's full debutant Andy Drury.

Luck, Truth, Girls in Portugal by Mullet
Football is obviously a global game and these days that concept is more keenly emphasised in no other place like England, with the Premier League as vast and cosmopolitan as the Roman Empire, while the national side flounders like ball-playing barbarians.
Tractor Boy on a Mission by wadey
As some of you may know, on 1st April 2012, me and my partner Becky lost our beautiful son, Tyler. He was only 15 months old when he passed away peacefully in his sleep. Later that year, we began fundraising for a brilliant charity, The Lullaby Trust (formerly known as FSID).
Sam Allardyce – The Sensible Choice? by realprojection
My view of Sam Allardyce is heavily influenced by the most exciting match I’ve ever watched. Ipswich’s 5-3 (AET) defeat of Bolton in a play-off semi-final second leg in May 2000.
The National Conundrum by Bluetaff
No, not the referendum – although don’t get me started on that can of worms, I mean the constant disappointment of the national team at… well, the national game.

With the lads back in pre-season training yesterday, I thought I'd write a short blog on what positions/players that could really improve us for the tough season ahead.
