Bru and Dougie clear to play and Giles close to return but Town wait on Murph

Jonathan Douglas and Kevin Bru are both available for Tuesday’s trip to Bolton but Daryl Murphy is still a concern with a calf injury. 

Dougie missed the win over Nottingham Forest at the weekend after sustaining a cut to his foot in training while Kevin was forced off at half-time with a sickness bug.

“Dougie is fine. He wanted to play on Saturday but we didn’t want to risk him making it worse and being out for a few weeks. It was my call,” Town boss Mick McCarthy told Ipswich Player HD. 

“Kevin was sick at half-time on Saturday and in a bad way. We sent him straight home. 

“I rang him yesterday expecting him to be full up with a virus but he said he was fine and ready to train so that’s a nice bonus for us because I thought he played well in the first-half.

“They will both be okay for Bolton but it might be too early for Murph. We will see. We have a lot of games to play and we won’t risk him. We will see how he is.”

Giles Coke is still missing with a knee ligament injury that has kept him out since the defeat at QPR a month ago but told Ipswich Player HD: “I’m on the mend now and should be back in training later this week.”

Subscribers to Ipswich Player HD can watch the full interviews with Mick and Giles later today.
