Huddersfield v Ipswich Town: Blues boss Mick McCarthy has no fresh injury worries ahead of Saturday’s trip to struggling Huddersfield.

Richard Stearman will be fit, despite badly dislocating a finger in Tuesday night’s defeat to Watford, while Lee Martin will also be in contention to keep his run in the team going.

“Everyone is okay, Stears dislocated his finger and had a bit of trouble getting it put back together,” said McCarthy.

“He was being sedated on Tuesday night but he is alright now.

“But I have told him to stay away from training as the last thing I needed was for him to get a bang on it in training, so we will meet him in Huddersfield on Friday night.

“Lee Martin did okay against Watford, for someone that has been off for three weeks. He has got a remarkable level of fitness.

“In the end, he got blisters and he was struggling with those.”

It’s been a relief somewhat to not have to worry about the thought of an Ipswich game over the weekend and for someone that really dislikes a blank weekend because on an international break, it’s an indication of how bad things are right now.

It’s been a dismal season for Ipswich Town fans and it could yet get worse.

Ipswich may have broken out of their run of straight draws – but a 3-1 defeat isn’t really much to shout about.

Ipswich Town defender Tommy Smith has told a newspaper in New Zealand that he is 100% committed to playing for the national team, ahead of the All Whites’ World Cup qualifiers against Fiji.

With eight games to go, Ipswich Town are still not safe from relegation to League One, following a tough season in the Championship, and lost 3-1 at Cardiff City at the weekend.

Mick McCarthy says his managerial record is the reason for his longevity at Portman Road, not owner Marcus Evans’ perceived patience with his managers.

Ipswich Town will not be backtracking on their decision to raise the price of season tickets, despite a huge outcry from supporters.

Loan duo Dominic Samuel and Jonny Williams made timely injury comebacks last night as a strong Ipswich Town Under-23 side drew 1-1 with Crewe at Portman Road.

Ipswich Town have suffered a double injury blow with the news that forward duo David McGoldrick and Tom Lawrence have had to withdraw from the Republic of Ireland and Wales squads respectively.
