Ipswich V Charlton - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.
Taylor struggling for Tractor BoysStriker Paul Taylor is a huge doubt for Ipswich's important home clash against Charlton.The deadline-day signing sustained a nasty ankle injury during Wednesday's 2-0 home defeat to Wolves and was forced off early in the second half to be replaced by Jason Scotland, with the frontman later leaving Portman Road on crutches.The loss only increased the pressure on manager Paul Jewell as second-bottom Town continue to search for their first home league win of the season.Jewell is unlikely to have any other injury concerns but he has little room to reshuffle due to his threadbare squad, with only the likes of Scotland, Jay Emmanuel-Thomas, Andy Drury and Luke Hyam genuine options to come in.Town were booed off in midweek and anything other than a positive result against a Charlton side just one place above in the table and having lost their last three will surely add to the pressure on Jewell.Ricardo Fuller is in line to make his full Charlton debut.The Jamaican striker has made three lively substitute appearances since joining from Stoke last month and manager Chris Powell is considering throwing him in from the start.Powell is without defenders Rhoys Wiggins and Matt Taylor due to foot injuries while forward Jordan Cook has been ruled out with an eye problem.Veteran midfielder Andy Hughes is back in training after an Achilles injury but the weekend may come too soon.Attackers Danny Haynes and Scott Wagstaff played in a friendly match in midweek to build up their fitness following recent lay-offs but they are not ready to return to the first team.
