“I can fully understand that and wasn't any different as a player myself, but I told Darren that I couldn't guarantee him a place in the side.

“We have got players coming back from injury and Gary Roberts has come into the side and done well, so I told him that I wouldn't stand in his way if he wanted to go out on loan.”

Currie cost Town £250,000 from Brighton in December 2004. He has made 97 appearances and scored six gaols.

n Ipswich Town will possibly play their Club Colours Suffolk Premier Cup quarter-final tie against Ridgeons League Needham Market next week.

They have no reserve fixture although the first team plays a Championship match at Derby on Wednesday.

The round should have been completed by now.

The Bloomfields pitch at Needham was waterlogged after heavy rain, and the game was postponed at 4pm.

Gavin Williams, Owen Garvan, Shane Supple and Jaime Peters were included in a strong Town side that was due to play last night.
