Mick McCarthy has a few injury concerns heading into tomorrow’s clash with Nottingham Forest, but the Ipswich boss remained tight-lipped on which players were struggling with knocks.
Luke Hyam is fit to play despite struggling with calf trouble in recent weeks, but McCarthy says there are a few other issues he’s waiting on and wants to give his players as long as possible to recover.
“Luke’s fine, he’s trained today, he’s been training this week, and he’s good to go,” McCarthy said.
“There might be (a few injuries), I’m just waiting to see until tomorrow so you’ll have to wait I’m afraid.
“It’s a busy little spell and we’ve got bumps and bruises and we’re just trying to give them as much time as we can to be fit or not.”

“He’s (Fraser) been training and just felt (his hamstring) slightly, but the timeline for him, hopefully, would be getting on the bus for Wolves. That would be great.
“They’ve both been training (Bishop and McGoldrick) but we’ve just held Bish back. Didzy came out and trained again and did a lot of work, so he’s looking very positive.
“So is Bish, we just pulled him out because he’d done enough.”
