DAVID Norris is a major doubt for Ipswich Town's game at Birmingham City tomorrow.

The Town midfielder suffered a dead leg in the Blues' 2-0 win over Derby County on Saturday and is still suffering.

Town boss Jim Magilton said: “David is struggling to be fit. He has a dead leg which is still sore and we know how painful they can be.

“We will give him every chance and another 24 hours might help but he is a doubt.”

Skipper Gareth McAuley is making good progress from his hamstring problem and is pushing for a return, while Moritz Volz is available after a one-match ban but Magilton admits he is reluctant to change after keeping a clean sheet against The Rams.

That would mean Alex Bruce keeping his place in the Town side as he faces his old club Birmingham City.
