IPSWICH boss Joe Royle has no choice but to play a waiting game ahead of struggling Bradford's visit to Portman Road on Saturday.

Royle would like nothing better than to be able to parade at least one new face as his team looks to arrest an alarming slump in home form.

Town will be looking to register only their second win in five home league games when Bryan Robson's relegation-threatened outfit are the visitors at the weekend.

Royle said: "I have identified the players I would like and it's now a question of waiting to hear from the managers concerned. It just depends on how quickly people come back to me.

"I would like it to happen straight away, but it just doesn't work like that. We will just have to be patient and see what comes of it."
