Huws and Skuse Could Return Against Rotherham
Thursday, 10th Jan 2019 14:45
Town boss Paul Lambert says he will decide tomorrow whether to include Emyr Huws and Cole Skuse in his squad for Saturday’s home game against Rotherham, while keeper Dean Gerken is among a number of players to have shaken off knocks ahead of the Millers’ visit.
“We’ve got a few injuries back, which I hoped would happen,” Lambert said. “Deano’s one of them. We’ve got quite a strong squad for Saturday.”
The Blues boss says no one has picked up a new injury: “Everybody’s good, everybody’s in good spirits, which is really important. We’ll be ready.”
Skuse, who has been out since early December having undergone minor knee surgery, and Huws, whose own knee problem has sidelined him for 13 months, had previously been pencilled in to make their returns on Saturday and Lambert says they could well be involved.
“They’re doing OK,” he said. “They’ve been back training with us for a couple of weeks. We’ll see how they are and I’ll judge it tomorrow.
“Cole’s absence has been a huge blow because I think he was playing really at the top of his game and I thought he was really enjoying his game. But that’s football, that’s what happens.
“Where we fell down was probably [in terms of a replacement for him]. If Cole Skuse was out, who was going to replace him? A like-for-like, we didn’t have that cover. But hopefully he’s going to be OK.”
Tom Adeyemi is still out having undergone achilles surgery, while Grant Ward is out for the season having ruptured his anterior cruciate knee ligament.

Broken Ipswich by SouperJim
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.
