Cole Skuse has been ruled out of Ipswich Town’s home match with fellow Championship strugglers Wigan Athletic tomorrow night after suffering concussion in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Birmingham City at Portman Road.

Skuse was replaced by Kevin Bru just before half-time at the weekend after a clash of heads.

“He can’t play on Tuesday because he was concussed but providing all his symptoms are clear he should be alright for Fulham on Saturday,” said manager Mick McCarthy

Town’s three Welsh loanees – Tom Lawrence (groin), Emyr Huws (hamstring) and Jonny Williams (ill) – are all back in training.

“Admittedly Tom’s only had one training session today, so we’ll see how he feels tomorrow, you never know,” said McCarthy. “You can do all the rehabbing and then you train with the lads and that can be different.

“Jonny Williams had been poorly and missed Saturday but he’s trained on Sunday and Monday, so he’s OK and Emyr’s had four or five days’ training now, so he’s all right to be selected.”

McCarthy says striker Kieffer Moore has missed out on a place in the 18 in recent games as he has had other options, while he says he has no plans to recall Kundai Benyu from his loan at Aldershot.
