Ipswich (9) v Sheff Wed (4)

Ipswich defender Jonathan Parr is back in contention after a thigh injury and could come in for 17-year-old Josh Emmanuel.

Town boss Mick McCarthy has indicated that midfielder Teddy Bishop will not be rushed back as he recovers from a tight hamstring.

McCarthy made sweeping changes for the midweek Capital One Cup tie with Stevenage and may be inclined to shake things up again.

Wednesday head coach Carlos Carvalhal has no new injury worries and is likely to rotate his squad, after making nine changes for the Capital One Cup win against Mansfield.

Striker Atdhe Nuhui, winger Ross Wallace, skipper Glenn Loovens and goalkeeper Keiren Westwood are poised for returns, while summer signings Lucas Joao, Rhoys Wiggins and Modou Sougou will all be hoping to retain their places.
