Ipswich Town are hopeful that Ben Thatcher could make his comeback from injury in Saturday's Championship game at Blackpool.
The Wales full-back has been out of action since tearing a thigh muscle in September, but played a full 90 minutes of a reserve team game earlier in the week.
"Ben did well and came through the game fine. He's close to full fitness now," coach Chris Kiwomya told the club's official website.
Meanwhile, veteran Spanish midfielder Ivan Campo also made his own comeback after managing 80 minutes against Ebbsfleet.
