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.

We'll Win Again Some Sunny Day by SpiritOfJohn
2018 has been a terrible year to be an Ipswich Town supporter.
Amazingly, we have only one twice at home this year, against Leeds in January and Barnsley in April.
What Would Eric Gates Say? by millvalleyblue
I started supporting Ipswich when I was six. I’m 49 now and live in Mill Valley, just north of San Francisco. I grew up in Cork. People always ask: Ipswich? Why? The reason was my best friend, Christopher, supported Ipswich. I’ve no reason why he did. All the other kids supported Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal or Leeds.
Feeling Very Blue Not Watching You by Pessimistic
Being an overseas supporter means I get to see all the live streams of Ipswich Town games for a seasonal subscription fee. Great idea! Well, it used to be, until one day I could not log in and asked iFollow to resend my password.
Man v Fat Football - A Personal Blog by GavTWTD
I'm fat. There, I said it. I'm a 248lb/112kg bloke in my late 40s and I'm struggling with my weight. I've lacked the will power to either do something about it or, when I've succeeded, to keep it off.
Where We Might Be Without Asset Stripping by David_GG
I am writing today to put forward my opinion about the sorry sad state of Ipswich Town and I suspect a number of other clubs around the land with supporters who feel as if they are suffering at the hands otherwise hugely successful businessmen and women as owners.
