FRENCH midfielder Sylvain Legwinski looks set for a recall to the Ipswich Town team for their Coca Cola Championship game at Queens Park Rangers tomorrow (kick off 3pm).

Manager Jim Magilton hinted strongly today that he will revert to the system he used successfully at Burnley in Town's last away match.

The Blues quickly went into a 2-0 lead before being unlucky not to win a game that ended 2-2.

Alan Lee played up front on his own and he is likely to do the same at Loftus Road, which means Spanish striker Pablo Counago will be starting on the bench.

Magilton said: “Sylvain (Legwinski) comes into my thoughts for tomorrow as we found a way at Burnley of doing well on our travels.

“We have been looking for this for a number of weeks, and regardless of how we did at home against Preston in our last game we must build on the performance at QPR tomorrow.

“We were solid at Turf Moor and must look for the same stability again.”

Magilton collected his first away win as a manager at QPR last September and he added: “Three points will give us all a fillip with two home matches next week to follow. They are bottom of the table so it will be disappointing not to get something from the match.

“But they will not be easy opponents although after this stage of the season every club deserves to be where they are placed in the league.”

Magilton confirmed that skipper Jason De Vos is expected to play after training today after suffering a slight knee injury while Billy Clarke has overcome his groin problem and keeper Shane Supple is fit enough to take his place on the bench.

Fabian Wilnis, although a little rusty against Preston is expected to continue at the back alongside De Vos with Ipswich set to employ Legwinski in the middle of a central five that will have Jon Walters on one side and Clarke on the other.

Owen Garvan and Tommy Miller will be the other midfield performers.

Defender Matt Richards is going to spend another month on loan at Brighton while Jozef Adamik has returned to Slovakia after spending time on trial at Portman Road.

Magilton said: “He has gone back to his club, but it is not the end of our interest in him.”
