McDonnell back with Blues as injuries start to bite

Cole Skuse remains a doubt for Saturday’s game at Wolves with Blues  recalling Adam McDonnell from his loan spell at Aldershot.

Town have eight midfield players on the injury list [Dozzell, Huws, Adeyemi, Nydam, Downes, Bru, Hyam, Skuse] leaving the boss to make a Thursday morning phone call to add to his options.

“I counted them this morning. Eight midfielders injured,” Mick McCarthy told iFollow Ipswich.

“Skusey is doubtful for Wolves. We are still hopeful but I won’t be risking him if he’s not right.

“Kevin Bru collided with Didz and he has bruised a rib but he tells me he will be okay.

“We are short on numbers though and I rang Gary Waddock [Aldershot manager] this morning and had to give him the bad news.

“Adam has benefited from being there and they have benefited from him being there. He will come back to us a better player for the experience.”
