Ipswich Town striker Jon Stead is on track to be fit to feature in the derby clash with Norwich City as he recovers from back injury.
The 26-year-old missed the weekend clashes with Doncaster Rovers and Bristol City, but has returned to training with the Tractor Boys.
Physio Matt Byard told the club's official website: "Jon had a sore back, but he's on the mend now and has done some light training work.
"He will increase his workload through the week and providing there is no reaction, should be okay for the Norwich match."
Stead has netted 11 goals for Town this season, having joined on loan from Sheffield United just before the start of the campaign.
