Midfielder out until April
Flynn Downes is set for a spell of four to six weeks on the sidelines following a hamstring injury.
The Town midfielder came off in the 36th minute in Saturday's 1-0 victory over Plymouth at Portman Road.
Scans have now shown that Flynn has sustained a grade two hamstring strain on his right leg.
The 22-year-old has made 17 appearances in all competitions this term and had featured in the starting XI for Town's last two outings.
