Kieron Dyer is in line for his second home debut for Ipswich against Watford on Tuesday night.
Midfielder Dyer started his career in Suffolk before joining Newcastle in 1999 and returned on loan from West Ham on Friday. He started at Leeds on Saturday and will again be involved.
Captain David Norris will be missing as he completes his two-game ban but Jimmy Bullard returned from a hamstring injury at Elland Road and will keep his place.
Mark Kennedy - who can play in midfield or at left-back - will be out for several weeks with a hamstring injury so Darren O`Dea will continue at full-back.
Goalkeeper Brian Murphy has stepped up his comeback from a broken ankle after coming out of plaster but Marton Fulop will continue.
