IPSWICH Town hope to find out later today just how serious the injury to Gavin Williams is after the midfielder had a MRI scan this morning.

Blues boss Jim Magilton is anxiously waiting for a diagnosis from a specialist but accepts he will have to plan the early part of the season without Williams.

Magilton said: “Gavin had the scan this morning and we know the injury is serious but until we hear from the specialist we don't know how long he will be out.”

George O'Callaghan looked particularly impressive in the reserve friendly win at Dartford, while Gary Roberts scored and Matt Richards shone.
