Paul Jewell has fully-fit squad to pick from against Wolves – but no new signings
Ipswich v Wolverhampton: Paul Jewell has confirmed he has no injury worries within his slim squad ahead of tomorrow night’s home match against Wolves.
The Blues boss admitted both Luke Chambers and Paul Taylor picked up knocks in Saturday’s defeat at Middlesbrough.
But the pair have been passed fit while Jewell also gave positive news about Guirane N’Daw who came through his first match in a Town shirt with passing colours.
It leaves Jewell with an option – rather than being forced – to make any changes after the weekend defeat as they look to move away from the relegation zone.
Once again, the Town boss said there was no developments on his search for a new centre-back with German trialist Kevin Pezzoni not offered a new deal, as reported by this website yesterday.
