It’s a clash of two struggling sides in the Championship as Ipswich Town host Barnsley at Portman Road with both teams in desperate need of a win.
The hosts have not been victorious in the league in their last four attempts and have endured three back-to-back draws.
As a result striker Paul Taylor has been recalled from a loan spell with Peterborough United by Ipswich manager Mick McCarthy and could go straight into the starting XI.
Despite picking up injuries during the 1-1 draw with Bolton Wanderers last weekend, goalkeeper Dean Gerken and forward Daryl Murphy are expected to be fit to play for McCarthy’s men.
For the away team winger Paddy McCourt is likely to miss out after fitness concerns from their draw with Sheffield Wednesday and Kelvin Etuhu is set to fill in.
‘Keeper Luke Steele and defender Peter Ramage remain sidelined for Garry Flitcroft’s side, while Lewin Nyatanga is still recovering from a long-term knee problem.
Jack Butland is set to continue in goal – with the young Englishman on-loan from Stoke City – and there could be recalls for Bobby Hassell, Tomasz Cywka, Stephen Dawson and Jim O’Brien, with the Yorkshire team second bottom in the table with just nine points.
