Ipswich Town boss Kieran McKenna confirms one or two players will be assessed ahead of Huddersfield visit





Ipswich Town boss Kieran McKenna admitted his side have a ‘few knocks and niggles’ as one or two players are going to be assessed tomorrow morning ahead of the Blues’ all-important final game of the season at home to Huddersfield Town tomorrow (12.30pm).

Town know that just one point against the all-but-relegated Terriers is enough to secure a return to the Premier League for the first time in 22 years – as they sit three points ahead of third-placed Leeds United who hold a better goal difference.

Following his side’s crucial victory against Coventry City on Tuesday – which put the Blues further in the driving seat for automatic promotion –McKenna confirmed that Leif Davis and Wes Burns had no big issues after both players were both seen limping during the 2-1 win at the CBS Arena.

Harry Clarke was also ruled out of the matchday squad with a knee injury.

“We’ve got a few knocks and a few niggles. We’re going to assess one or two (players) in the morning as well, which can happen with a quick turnaround,” he said.

“We have no long-term injuries, no injuries that as we stand here today have immediately ruled anyone out of the squad, but we do have some players carrying some issues that might determine their involvement tomorrow or how many minutes they can play.
