Ipswich Town loanee Ryan Fraser is set to be sidelined for six to eight weeks with the hamstring injury he sustained in the latter stages of Saturday’s 1-0 defeat at QPR.

The Bournemouth loanee underwent a scan on Monday and the news is as bad as first feared, manager Mick McCarthy having described it as ‘nasty-looking’ straight after the game.

The flying left-winger has been Town’s star man this season, exciting fans with his direct-running. He was sidelined for 12 matches with a knee injury between September and December, Ipswich’s record during that time read W5 D4 D3.

It’s understood that Ipswich are closing in on the addition of Ben Pringle, on loan from Fulham, as a replacement.

  • Would it be an idea if the EADT started campaigning for Bournemouth's reserves play at Portman Road. This would give Offshore Investment supporters a better quality team to support. It would also save the mysterious unknown owners the apparently ruinous expense of employing cast-offs and unwanted loans and would comply with financial fair play. Just to complete the illusion they could play in fake Barcelona shirts which also seems important to latter-day 'supporters'.

  • Bacon & egg and others. Understand the financial fair play rules and read the accounts and you will realise why there are no new players apart from reject loanees that are still on the payroll at their parent club. Bournemouth have got into trouble for buying that pup Mings. The are facing a massive fine plus they found out very quickly that they bought a zero quality player who never stood a chance of making it in the Premiership.

  • What are we going to do without Frazier no suitable replacement as Portsmouth showed no signings mid table finish but never mind is that what Evans want if so why dont he come out and tell the fans he has no intention of getting into the premier league bet he still intend to increase prices though

  • Chances of promotion gone. The club banked on Fraser staying fit and it's back fired. Lack of transfer activity now looks a disastrous decision, which I hope the club will apologise for. Evans better not increase prices as his transfer spending is that of a bottom half division one side. Prices should reflect.

  • No need to worry, we have Tabb and Toure waiting in the wings and a reserve player arriving from a bottom 6 championship club. I bet Steve Gibson is wishing he could get some helping advice from Marcus Evans on how to run a football club.
