Ipswich Town boss Kieran McKenna has revealed that Jack Taylor is set to miss 'a few weeks' with a quad injury.

The midfielder has mostly come off the bench this season, but he's still played an important part, scoring five goals in all competitions.

However, the injury will rule him out for Town's upcoming Championship games, while defender Janoi Donacien is set to be sidelined for six weeks after having surgery on his adductor earlier this week.

On top of that, new arrival Ali Al-Hamadi has been working to overcome an issue with his back that ruled him out of Iraq's Asian Cup defeat to Jordan on Monday, although McKenna confirmed that he was involved in training this morning.

"Jack Taylor is going to be out for a few weeks," the manager said in his press conference ahead of tomorrow's trip to Preston North End. "He has a quad issue, which leaves us lighter in midfield.

"We don't have an exact timescale on that. He's got a strain on his quad - not a massive strain - but he's going to miss a few weeks.

"Janoi had surgery on his adductor area, not a major surgery. The recovery time from that is around six weeks, and we're hopeful that will resolve the issue.

"He had that surgery in the early part of this week and he'll be back in the building today, so we're hopeful that we'll have him back for the later stages of the season and he can have an impact.

"Ali has missed some training with his back issue that he had, he missed the last Asian Cup game with it. He trained with the group for the first time today."
