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 was the Blue’s biggest win of the season – but after defeating QPR Mick McCarthy’s men now have to show they can start putting together back-to-back wins in order to climb up the table.

Ipswich Town head to Ashton Gate this afternoon, aiming to record back-to-back wins in the Championship for the first time this season.

Cole Skuse returns to Ashton Gate for the first time as an opposition player today, when his Ipswich Town side travel to Bristol City.

One goal either way could well prove decisive when Ipswich Town play at Ashton Gate, the home of Bristol City, tomorrow (3pm kick-off).

Mick McCarthy will stick with his winning formula at Bristol City tomorrow, even if his team selection remains unpopular amongst some supporters.

Blues midfielder Cole Skuse will celebrate with relish, should he get on the scoresheet at former club Bristol City tomorrow.

Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy said he had never encountered any stories of child abuse in football until this week, and says the number of alleged victims is “appalling”.

Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy has taken the unusual step of naming his side for Saturday’s trip to Bristol City - the Blues set to be unchanged for the Championship game at Ashton Gate.

Former Ipswich Town and Colchester United footballer David Wright has spoken of his shock at the historical child sex abuse which allegedly took place during his time in the Crewe Alexandra youth academy during the 1980s.

A 3-0 win was just what the doctor ordered for Ipswich Town as opponents QPR became the first team to really be taken to task by the Blues for some time.
