Murphy and Douglas Fine to Face Leeds
Monday, 11th Jan 2016 13:46

Town boss Mick McCarthy says striker Daryl Murphy and midfielder Jonathan Douglas will be OK to face Leeds at Portman Road on Tuesday having overcome their injuries.

Douglas missed the game at Burnley with a knee problem and like Murphy, who suffered a calf injury in training last week, wasn’t in the 18 whihc drew 2-2 at home to League Two Portsmouth on Saturday.

“Fine, perfectly OK, they both trained today, no problems,” manager McCarthy said, “Everyone else came through the weekend and is all right. We were blessed, no injuries, thank goodness.”

Regarding David McGoldrick’s return from the hamstring injury which has sidelined him since mid-December, he added: “It won’t be in February, it might be the end of February, he’s really damaged his hamstring. Dreadful for him, he’s had a tough time with injuries.

“He’ll get the best treatment and we’ll get him back asap but it’s not going to be this week or within three or four weeks.”

Teddy Bishop also remains sidelined with a hamstring injury, while Larsen Touré returned to training last week after his groin injury.

With Dids and Bish out I think we need a decent midfielder and striker in

Only one from Skuse, Hyam or Douglas. Otherwise lacks creativity and goals in the centre.

Agree jas0999. One of those - preferably Skuse - alongside Bru in the centre.
