Delaney out for six weeks
IPSWICH Town defender Damien Delaney is facing an extended spell on the sidelines after undergoing surgery on his fractured foot.
The 30-year-old was injured in the defeat to Crystal Palace a fortnight ago and underwent surgery to correct the problem on Monday.
“Damien has a stress fracture of his foot and he’s going to be out for a little while,” said manager Paul Jewell.
“He had an operation yesterday and he will be out for a while, maybe six weeks or so, but I’m not sure on an exact timescale so we will have to just wait and see.”
There is better news regarding the fitness of midfielder Lee Bowyer (hamstring) though, as well as strike duo Daryl Murphy (hamstring) and Nathan Ellington (calf) – all of whom missed Saturday’s 3-2 home defeat to Doncaster.

“Lee Bowyer and Daryl Murphy did some running with the physios today (Tuesday) so those two are progressing nicely, and Duke’s [Ellington] calf is okay now,” added Jewell.
