Ipswich Town manager Kieran McKenna says he has 'a couple of judgement decisions' going into tomorrow's Championship home clash with Sheffield Wednesday.

Speaking ahead of the third-v-23rd clash at Portman Road, the Blues boss revealed: "We have a couple of issues from the game last weekend (2-1 defeat at Cardiff) and from training during the week - nothing major.

"Of course, I don’t want to give away too much going into a really important game, but we've had a couple of things we've had to nurse through this week off the back of last week and a couple of judgement decisions we’ll have to make regarding the squad."

Striker Ali Al-Hamadi, who has scored two goals in eight sub appearances since making a £1m+ switch from AFC Wimbledon in January, has not been included in the Iraq squad ahead of next weekend's international fixtures.

"He's got an ongoing issue in his adductor region that needs management, so he's under constant treatment and medication and it’s something that will need to be reviewed again at the end of the season," explained McKenna.

"He will be available for the weekend. He needs to have some treatments over the next two weeks over the international break, then that will hopefully have him available for the Blackburn game (on Good Friday) and for the last eight games. But it is an issue that’s going to have to be managed through to the end of the season."

Meanwhile, McKenna confirmed that striker Kieffer Moore is good to go again, after having a cut he sustained above the eye last weekend glued.

He also reiterated that striker George Hirst, who underwent hamstring surgery in January, could still play again this season.  

"George is progressing well, so we’ll have to see how the next few weeks go," said the Blues boss.

"I think he's nearly ready to get out on the grass and start running. We're hopeful that we'll see him before the end of the season.

"There's no point in putting any exact timescale on it. I think the last league game is the first week in May. We hope for that, but it's not impossible that it could be a little bit before that.

"But in this last stage of the rehab, there can always be little setbacks or changes to the timescale, so there’s no point in putting any one particular fixture or day on it."

There was less positive news on Janoi Donacien. It was hoped that the full-back was close to being available again, following recovery from the groin surgery undergone in late January, but the 30-year-old - who is set to be out of contract this summer - has suffered another setback. 

"He's still not made the progress that he would have hoped and that we would have hoped," explained McKenna.

"He's still got some symptoms in his adductor area. It’s frustrating for everyone, Janoi first and foremost.

"He's had some different treatments this week and hopefully there'll be a better response from them and he can get back on the grass next week."
