IPSWICH Town are sweating on the fitness of a number of their players ahead of tomorrow night's home game with Sheffield United.

Jon Walters suffered a jarred knee in the 1-1 draw with Southampton on Saturday, while Pablo Counago has a dead leg.

Blues boss Jim Magilton today said: “We have been wrapping Jon up in cotton-wool because he has had a problem with his knee and he took a knock on it early on Saturday so we will have to see how he is later.”

Alan Quinn is hoping to play against his former side and will be assessed after training today as he recovers from an ankle injury.

Magilton said: “We will see how Alan is today but he didn't take him to Southampton so he could have extra time to get fit and he has responded well to treatment.”
