Jack Colback is in line for his second Ipswich debut when Roy Keane`s side make the trip to Watford.
Colback was on loan from Sunderland last season - scoring at Vicarage Road - and could be back in the side again after rejoining late last week.
Fellow loanee, Celtic defender Darren O'Dea, is absent after he had knee surgery on a problem that has dogged him since September. He now faces six weeks on the sidelines.
However Shane O'Connor (hamstring), Damien Delaney and Luciano Civelli (both knee) are all back in contention after using the international break to get back to full fitness.
Keane could make changes following the disappointing 2-1 home defeat to Coventry on Saturday, with David Norris, Connor Wickham and Tamas Priskin all hoping to return.
