Reda Johnson (foot) missed out at Blackpool but could be back in contention this weekend.

There is no further news in terms of injuries and suspensions.

The former West Ham man scored twice against the Eagles as Ipswich ran out comfortable 3-0 winners, with Aaron Cresswell also on target.


Mick McCarthy’s men verge on the brink of safety with 56 points – two points above the Owls.

Jay Tabb (knee) is set to make his return to action on Saturday, while Lee Martin (ankle) and Aaron McLean (toe) are doubts for Ipswich.

View from the dugout

Dave Jones said: “Who knows how many points it will take to be safe, I was told this morning that with the points we have, we probably already are safe but we will not look at it like that until safety is guaranteed.”


Mick McCarthy said: “The players have been great. They must take a lot of credit for what they have done but as I have said, there is still work to be done before we are mathematically safe.”
