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.

Money Doesn't Guarantee Success? by wadey
Due to all the arguments about not spending money on players and other people saying 'spending doesn't guarantee success', I decided to do some research. I've looked at every club that has been promoted since we were relegated in 2002.
Luke Chambers Will Be a Town Legend by Pickersblue22
As one of the greatest leaders in Premier League history announces he is leaving English football a the end of the season, I think it appropriate to pay tribute to our very own Captain Fantastic.
Is the Game Now Too Rich for Marcus Evans? by itfcjoe
As Ipswich look to be leaving the January transfer window with a weaker squad than the one they entered it with, it leads me to question what is Marcus Evans’s plan for the football club.
Time for a Break? by Bluetaff
As strong winds and torrential rain batter the UK, we enjoy again another wet and dreary winter. Long gone are the visions of a white and frosty Christmas so often played out in annual offerings from Hollywood.
