Walters out of Dutch trip

16 July 2010 02:00
Ipswich skipper Jon Walters will miss the trip to Holland to face PSV Eindhoven on Saturday after being sidelined with a virus. The striker has sat out training for much of this week and has been left out of the squad of 18 to face the Dutch giants. However, Luciano Civelli is included in the travelling party as he looks to step up his recovery from knee ligament damage that left him on the sidelines for 18 months. And youngsters Jack Ainsley, Troy Brown and Luke Hyam are also set to make the trip as the Tractor Boys look to build on their wins at non-League Newmarket and Histon. Boss Roy Keane told the club`s official website: "The strength of the opposition will obviously be a lot higher and it will be a big test for us. We are aware of that but we're looking forward to it. "We are obviously going out to win the game but the main objective for us is the fitness levels and getting the players match time."
