Ipswich Town striker David McGoldrick has picked up a knee injury on international duty with the Republic of Ireland.

The 29-year-old was handed his sixth cap and played the full 90 minutes of last Thursday’s 3-1 friendly defeat to Mexico, in America, then was named as an unused substitute in Sunday’s 3-1 home victory over Uruguay.

The silky front man, who has endured two injury ravaged years at Portman Road, missed training this morning due to a problem behind his knee and Ireland manager Martin O’Neill is waiting on the results of a scan.

He is a doubt ahead of a World Cup qualifier against Austria, in Dublin, on Sunday.

“David has had a niggle behind his knee which has come on a little bit,” O’Neill said. “It is niggly and we are a bit concerned about it.”

We have assembled a group of Town fans to predict the outcome of Ipswich games and have their say on what’s going on at Portman Road.

Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy says he’s ready to start experimenting with his side now that a Championship play-off place looks out of reach.

Bartosz Bialkowski and Ipswich Town still have ‘a couple of things to sort’ before the Polish goalkeeper signs his new contract with the club.

Mick McCarthy shouted ‘f*** off’ in the direction of – but, he insists, not at – Ipswich Town fans after his side took the lead at Norwich on Sunday. Today the Blues boss, who has faced plenty of toxic chants over the last 12 months, was quizzed on the incident ahead of tomorrow’s home game against Cardiff.

Mick McCarthy has no new injury worries for tomorrow night’s visit of Cardiff City but admits he could make changes to his side as he prepares for the second of three games in just seven days.

A Suffolk girl who braved the North Sea for the hospice that cared for her great-grandmother has been named Ipswich Town FC’s “Community Champion”.

Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock is anticipating another eventful evening when he brings his side to Portman Road tomorrow night.

Ipswich Town welcome a Cardiff side sitting second in the Championship to Portman Road.

Winning games of football is the best way to heal a damaged relationship between touchline and terrace, former Blues boss George Burley insists.
