IPSWICH Town right back David Wright is a doubt for tomorrow's Coca-Cola championship game at Hull City (kick off 12.30pm).

The 27-year-old is suffering from an infected blister on his heel and is on a course of antibiotics.

Blues boss Jim Magilton said today: “It is not looking very good and looks painful. We will leave a decision until tomorrow when hopefully it will have cleared up to enable David to play.

“If he is unfit then I am spoiled for choice to bring in a replacement.

“Fabian Wilnis will play anywhere for me, but I perhaps see him more as a central defender these days while we also have Sito Castro and Chris Casement.

“They have both done outstandingly well in the reserves this season and I would not hesitate in naming them in the side.”

Magilton revealed that he had Hull watched when they lost 4-0 to Chelsea in the Carling Cup on Wednesday and said: “We plan to exploit certain weaknesses that we spotted and have been working on that in training this week.

“We have a game plan and tomorrow's match is about building on last week's satisfying home victory over Coventry.

“It is important that we focus every second of the match and that we show resilience on our travels away from Portman Road.”

Magilton has a clean bill of health apart from Wright and long term injury casulities Richard Naylor and Gavin Williams and could change his formation to 4-3-3 if he feels that is the best way to get a result tomorrow.
