But Cole a concern as Town prepare to take on Championship leaders

Jonny Williams and David McGoldrick will be in the squad for Saturday’s trip to Newcastle but Cole Skuse is a doubt. 

The Town midfielder limped off during the second-half of the win over Burton in midweek with a toe problem.

“It’s the ligament in his toe, which he had last season and he missed a few games with that,” Town boss Mick McCarthy told the Club website. 

“It’s nowhere near as bad as that though and we haven’t ruled him out yet. He’s had a scan and we will see where we are with him. 

“Jonny and Didz have both trained today and trained well. They will be available for the weekend and Dougie [Jonathan Douglas] is okay as well. 

“He had a bit of fluid on the knee but I wanted to get Bish [Teddy Bishop] and Kevin Bru in the team against Burton anyway so that’s why I left him out.

“Luke Varney trained as well and we will see how he is tomorrow. It may be too early for him.”

Varns has been sidelined for a couple of weeks with a hamstring problem while Jonny missed the Burton game with a tight thigh. Didz has not featured since sustaining ruptured ankle ligaments against Stevenage in August
