CARDIFF City fan Gavin Williams is hoping to make his Ipswich Town come back against the Bluebirds.
The Blues midfielder has started training with the first team squad and is pencilled in to play against Peterborough Reserves on November 19.
If all goes well Town manager Jim Magilton is hoping to recall him for the Championship match at Cardiff City five days later.

Williams ruptured ligaments in a pre-season friendly at Portman road against Panathinaikos, just as he was hitting top form again following his recovery from a groin problem that needed surgery.
The 27-year-old is an avid Bluebirds fan and trained at Ninian Park as a youngster before joining Hereford United.
A fiercely proud Welshman Williams ahs been capped twice for his country and loves playing in the principality's capital city.
The highly-rated midfielder arrived at Ipswich from West Ham in a £250,000 move after a loan spell and scored on his debut at Coventry City.
He was at Yeovil before that, with Bristol City boss Gary Johnson his manager at Huish Park so they will look for a happy reunion tomorrow, even if the game has come to early for Williams.
Alan Lee and Neil Alexander will both be looking to meet old friends at Ninian Park with both players arriving at Portman Road from Cardiff City.
Alexander was a popular keeper with Bluebirds' fans, while Lee's stint at Cardiff was hampered by injury so he can show them what they missed out on.
