THE injury jinx has struck again for Ipswich Town with three players struggling to be fit for Saturday's Championship clash with Wolves.
Lewis Price did wonders in goal against Cardiff despite hobbling from a jarred left knee early in the second half and should train this morning.
Kevin Horlock and Nicky Forster, who are both suffering from swollen knees, will not train today and are doubts for Saturday.

On-loan Blackburn defender Jay McEveley has been ruled out for the rest of the season after a serious knee injury that needs surgery. The medial ligament has become detached from the bone and that involves a lengthy recovery process.
Joe Royle could be further defensively stretched if Fabian Wilnis fails in his appeal this morning against the red card at Cardiff.

Royle was at Elland Road last night to watch the Academy boys in FA Youth Cup action and is confident the Dutchman will win his appeal.
He said: “The tape clearly shows the lad taking another step before going down and it certainly was not a clear goal-scoring opportunity so we are confident.
“That is the fourth red card we have had this season and all involved diving. We certainly need Fabian and while we can just about cope at the moment we could do without any more injuries.”
Town were not helped by the early substitution of 17-year-old Irish midfielder Owen Garvan at Leeds last night, as he seemed to be limping on the ankle that has recently kept him out of action.
Scott Barron is likely to be called into the squad for the visit of Wolves, while Adam Proudlock, Jaime Peters and Dean Bowditch will be looking for a start.
