Boss boosted by midfielder's return although confirms that Kevin Bru will miss out with a knee injury
Town boss Mick McCarthy has been boosted by the return of Teddy Bishop for tomorrow’s clash with Brentford at Portman Road.
The Academy graduate has missed the last three games with an ankle injury but should be fine to return, although Kevin Bru will be missing for Town after twisting his knee against Leeds.
David McGoldrick has stepped up his recovery from injury, although won’t be considered to feature, with midfield duo Luke Hyam and Darren Ambrose are still absentees.
“One out, one in so to speak on the injury front,” Mick told the official Club website.
“Kevin Bru twisted his knee on Wednesday night, which was a surprise as we didn’t realise until he limped off the bus at 3.30am on Thursday morning!
“Teddy Bishop is back though. He’s been out for nine days but he trained yesterday and today and he’s fit enough to be in the squad.
“David McGoldrick is back out on the grass, which is fantastic to see, but he’s still not fully fit of course.
“Then it is status quo with Luke Hyam and Darren Ambrose, neither of them are fit yet.”
Meanwhile the boss has confirmed that striker Paul Taylor has left Portman Road.
“Paul Taylor’s not our player. He’s not been back with us and he’s not my player,” Mick said.
