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.”

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy highlighted the performances of Josh Emmanuel, Jonas Knudsen and Tom Lawrence as positives after tonight’s goalless home draw with high-flying Brighton.

Ipswich Town couldn’t capitalise on Brighton finishing the game with 10 men as they played out a second successive goalless draw at Portman Road in front of their lowest league attendance in almost four years.

Ipswich Town have an opportunity to quickly bounce back from a 1-0 defeat to Leeds as they host Brighton and Hove Albion at Portman Road tonight.

Ipswich Town’s next home game takes place tonight – but how well do you know the opposition?

Ipswich Town captain Luke Chambers says the team has got to start trying to entertain the fans more ahead of tonight’s Championship clash with Brighton at Portman Road (7.45pm ko).

Ipswich Town skipper Luke Chambers feels criticism of him playing at right-back has been unjustified, but admits he’d love to nail down his preferred position of centre-back again.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy will continue to deploy a safety-first tactical approach heading into back-to-back home games.

Ipswich Town have nine players out injured for tomorrow night’s visit of Championship high-fliers Brighton, but the good news is that Grant Ward and Teddy Bishop are both available for selection.

Mick McCarthy has plenty of credit in the bank at Ipswich Town, but that could rapidly start to run out unless things begin to change.

Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy conceded his team were ‘poor’ in today’s 1-0 defeat at Leeds United and admitted a lack of goals is a concern.
