PREVIEW: TOWN V WATFORD

7 November 2014

Jonny hoping to be invovled after shrugging off his injury as Blues look to make it nine points out of nine from this week

Jonny Williams is hoping to return to the Town side following an injury lay-off- and start playing his part for the Blues.

The midfielder, on loan at Portman Road from Crystal Palace, has missed the last three games with a calf injury but is now hoping to be in line for a return to the starting line-up after overcoming his knocks.


“It’s been frustrating to have been missing out and I just want to be back out on that pitch, playing well for Ipswich,”

“I’ve not really been able to have a full week of training since I’ve been here, just because I’ve had to manage my fitness during the week.


“I’ve been training just at the end of the week and then playing - well I was until the last couple of games which I have obviously missed.

"I’m on the mend now and hopefully I might be involved tomorrow afternoon against Watford. It’s an important game for both sides but the boys have been flying recently and we are confident.”

The midfielder has also been called up by Wales manager Chris Coleman to represent his country against Belgium during the international break, in the latest Euro 2016 qualifier.
