Daryl Murphy and Jonathan Douglas both return to the Ipswich Town side following injury, as the Blues host Leeds United tonight.

The pair sat out Saturday’s 2-2 FA Cup draw with Portsmouth while nursing knocks, with Douglas also missing the 0-0 draw away at Burnley on January 2.

Both return tonight, as manager Mick McCarthy reverts to his regular side having rested players for Saturday’s cup clash. There is just one change from the last league game at Dean Court, with Douglas in for Luke Hyam, who drops to the bench.

For the visitors, former Ipswich loanee Chris Wood misses out with injury.
