Gerken and Skuse fit for Leeds and no bids for Cressy

Cole Skuse and Dean Gerken have both been declared fit for Saturday’s clash with Leeds. 

Goalkeeper Dean missed last weekend’s defeat by QPR with a dead leg while Cole was forced off at half-time at Loftus Road with an Achilles problem. 

“We have a clean bill of health apart from Tyrone Mings,” Town boss Mick McCarthy told the Club website. 

“Skusey and Dean have both trained and will be fine for the weekend. 

“Ty is still out with a knee injury and he won’t be back until after the international break.”

Mick also confirmed that there had been no bid from Crystal Palace or any other club for Aaron Cresswell, despite reports this week that the Premier League club had come in for the left-back. 

“There have been no bids for Cressy,” said Mick. “I’ve heard there are stories in the papers and that doesn’t surprise me because he is the best left-back in the Championship. That’s not me trying to talk him up, when players do well they deserve praise and he has been excellent for us.”

Town fans are advised that Portman Road will close for a short time after the final whistle against Leeds to allow the away fans to make their way to their coaches parked in that area.
