Chopra injury not serious
MICHAEL Chopra’s ankle injury sustained in the 1-1 draw at Southend tonight is nothing to worry about, says Ipswich Town manager Paul Jewell.
The in-form striker – who came into the game with four goals from three games – was withdrawn in the 25th minute after rolling his ankle.
“It’s just a precaution,” said Jewell. “He turned his ankle a bit in the first half and obviously we don’t want to be taking any chances so we whipped him off straight away.”
Striker Tamas Priskin also missed the game through injury, but again Jewell says it’s nothing serious.
He said: “He got a knee in his back yesterday and is a bit sore. Again it’s nothing serious.”

Reflecting on the game, Jewell said: “We took a look at a different system we might play in certain matches next season (4-1-4-1).
“First half I thought we played very well and had complete control of the game, but second half we didn’t start right and we were disappointing. Southend were the better team second half.
