Knudsen Set to Return as Blues Face Hull But Iorfa Out
Monday, 12th Mar 2018 14:05
Jonas Knudsen is expected to be OK for Tuesday’s home game against Hull City after missing Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Sheffield United with a hamstring problem, but Dominic Iorfa won’t be involved due to the thigh injury he sustained in the first half against the Blades.
“Dominic’s injured, he won’t be fit, he’s got a thigh strain,” said manager Mick McCarthy, whose squad are training this afternoon.
“He’s been for a scan today, we’ll see the results tomorrow, I think, or later today. Jonas is training today, so hopefully he’s OK.
“There are one or two bumps and bruises and scrapes and little knocks and I think a few tired legs, but I think they’re OK, they’re fit.”
Regarding striker Joe Garner, who has had one or two knocks including a knee problem, McCarthy says he’ll continue to nurse him through until the international break rather than give him a complete rest during this week’s two games.
“No, because he wants to be in the firing line, he keeps reporting himself fit for duty,” he added. “The plan has been to take it right to the international break and that’s what we’ll do.”
Mustapha Carayol will again miss out with the groin problem he picked up at Sheffield Wednesday, whilte Tom Adeyemi is still out with his hamstring injury.
Emyr Huws, Andre Dozzell (both knee), Teddy Bishop (hamstring), Dean Gerken (hip) and David McGoldrick (groin) are all out for the season.
If you’re looking to bet on Ipswich then the bookies have Hull slight favourites at 2.7 and the home team at 2.9.

End of Season Grades by BlueBloke
Football might be one of life’s trivial pursuits in which it’s never quite possible to gain enough distance; I still wince, for instance, at the two Bobby Zamora goals that killed our promotion dream in the 2005 play-offs.
TS Eliot and the Football Waste Land by monty_radio
April is the cruellest month – or so TS Eliot once said back in 1922, the year of the publication of his poem, The Waste Land, when the FA Cup final was done-and-dusted by the end of April.
Away Day Report: Reading by BlueBloke
I wake up at 5.30am. I’d like to say it was in anticipation of watching the Town. Sadly, it owes rather a greater deal to an abhorrently early alarm on Tuesday morning and a very late night on Thursday. Still, now that I’m conscious I may as well start thinking about the day ahead.
On This Day - Saturday 28th April 1962 by clivebleedingthomas
As a 15-year-old I make my way to Portman Road full of anticipation and anxiety. Our rivals, Burnley, are playing at home to already relegated Chelsea. A home win must be on the cards. On the following Tuesday they will play their game in hand against Sheffield Wednesday. However, Town are top of Division One and facing Aston Villa.
An Open Application for the Ipswich Manager's Position by BaltachaFanClub
I am already sick of the fiasco involving our new leader, the interview with our owner and all that goes with it, so I thought I should make a light-hearted, open application for the job my (fictional) self.
