Jackson: I'm Feeling a Lot Better
Tuesday, 20th Oct 2020 12:01
Striker Kayden Jackson says he’s feeling a lot better having tested positive for Covid-19 over the weekend.
The 26-year-old called in sick on Friday showing symptoms and took a test which came back positive. The rest of the squad underwent tests as a precaution all of which came back negative last night, the club confirmed this morning.
“Unfortunately I have been tested positive for coronavirus,” Jackson said in a tweet. “I am feeling a lot better, and I am self-isolating in line with the government guidelines.
“Will be supporting the boys from home and hope to be back on the pitch very soon! Thanks for all the messages!”
Jackson is required to self-isolate for at least 10 days but physio Matt Byard said he anticipates that that period will to stretch to a fortnight.
As a result, the former Accrington man will definitely miss tonight’s game at Doncaster, Saturday’s trip to Lincoln, next Tuesday’s home game against Gillingham and almost certainly Crewe Alexandra’s visit to Portman Road on Saturday 31st October and the away game at Sunderland on Tuesday 3rd November.

Season's Beatings by Moggasknockdown
It is a bitterly disheartening experience supporting Ipswich. At every sliding doors moment in our recent history we have taken the wrong path, at every opportunity for schadenfreude an ex-player will decisively score, or create or generally remind us all that they are happier now, away from the depressing, soul-destroying experience that was their Ipswich career.
Cycle of Hurt by Steve_M
It's hard not to see a club that has got nearly every big decision wrong and come out on the wrong side of almost every promotion or relegation fight over 19 years as being in anything other than terminal decline. The very obvious exception to that pattern of failure was the appointment of Mick McCarthy and his first few years here.
Climbing Up the Walls by Mullet
The world has undoubtedly changed and with it, until some indeterminate point, football has done too. Not only have we seen another club disappear as the fans of Macclesfield joined those of Bury in being locked out of the game, we might count ourselves lucky to only be locked out of Portman Road for our own good.
A Head in the Right Place by NormEmerges
A nice victory against Wigan, well played the Town, and you achieved it without what many consider our best player. For the second match in a row, Flynn Downes was left out because “his head wasn’t in the right place”.
Pyramid Strong by Mullet
On Friday the members of League One voted by majority to instigate a salary cap. In doing so they not only limit everybody in the division to spending £2.5m per season, but they limit themselves in making the transition to established second tier side or beyond.
