IPSWICH comeback stars Chris Makin and Tommy Miller could be back in action tomorrow.

The pair, who have both missed Town's last seven first team games, are on stand-by for the reserve fixture against Charlton at Portman Road (kick-off 7pm).

Manager Joe Royle said: "Both Chris and Tommy have stepped it up in training and I would say they have an outside chance of playing in tomorrow's game.

"I will have a good chat with the medical staff tomorrow morning and see how the players are. But even if we decide against playing them, they are both coming along well."

Royle said yesterday that Makin was progressing well enough to be in with a chance of being involved against Burnley at Portman Road in a week's time.
