Ipswich Town expected to be unchanged for visit of Cardiff City

PAUL Jewell has no new injury worries to concern himself with for the visit of promotion-chasing Cardiff City on Saturday.

Jewell’s number two Chris Hutchings today revealed that midfielders Lee Bowyer and Ryan Stevenson were now back in contention although it would be a surprise if the Town boss deviated much from the 16-man squad picked for the recent run of victories.

And the good news has continued with Ibrahima Sonko returning to light training this week after dislocating a rib in the abandoned match against Middlesbrough.

Hutchings refused to be drawn on how long Sonko would remain out for, but admitted he was delighted to see the big defender undertake some light jogging at the training ground.

And the assistant boss stressed that man of the moment Michael Chorpa was taken off against Portsmouth on Tuesday night as a precaution and has since resumed full training ahead of the meeting with his old club.
