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.

There is an unspoken contract between the fans and the club. Marcus Evans has ripped up this contract.
It is a Question of Caring and Camps by TimS
I accept that it is very different following Town away from Suffolk. You do not pick up on the mood on the street in Suffolk and there is something very different thinking about your club through the media whether Town are playing in Suffolk or throughout the UK.
More Than a Manager by Stowmarket
It was a warm Friday evening in late May and almost a thousand Ipswich fans had a date with Bobby Robson at Portman Road.
The Nearly Men by ElephantintheRoom
Throughout the Robson years, Town built an enviable reputation for producing homegrown talent. Young players seemed to slip into the first team almost on demand. For over a decade the team prospered with only the occasional ‘missing piece’ sourced from elsewhere.
John O’Rourke – Unsung Hero by ElephantintheRoom
Town supporters of a certain age look back rather fondly at Bill McGarry’s promotion team of 1967/68. We may be grey. But our memories are vivid. That team of half a century ago signalled something of a rebirth and laid firm foundations for the many good times that lay ahead.
