Cork out for Clarets
Burnley boss Eddie Howe will be without midfielder Jack Cork when his side host Ipswich.
The on-loan Chelsea youngster has returned to Stamford Bridge for medical tests after being taken ill on England international duty in Preston on Monday night.
Cork spent the night in hospital after suffering heart palpitations during the 2-1 defeat against Iceland at Deepdale.
Cork is thought to be suffering from a virus, but Howe is confident he will return to play a part in the Clarets` promotion push before the end of the season.
Strikers Charlie Austin, Steven Thompson and Martin Paterson and midfielder Chris McCann all remain sidelined through injury.
Austin and Paterson may not play again this term but Thompson and McCann are working towards match fitness.
Ipswich boss Paul Jewell is sweating over the fitness of midfielder Kieron Dyer.
The on-loan West Ham man is nursing a thigh injury but has returned to training and could of facing the Clarets.
Jewell is also assessing the state of his squad after losing eight of his players to international duty for the past 10 days.
Captain Gareth McAuley was handed the skipper's armband for Northern Ireland on Tuesday night but should be fit to start at Turf Moor.
Jewell will be without striker Tamas Priskin after he joined Swansea on loan for the rest of the season on transfer deadline day, while young midfielder Reggie Lambe was sent to Bristol Rovers.
Goalkeeper Brian Murphy made his comeback after three months out with a broken ankle in a reserve game last week and could be involved.
Wickham on song as Clarets struggle
Connor Wickham enhanced his burgeoning reputation with a fine goalscoring display to help Ipswich put another dent in Burnley`s npower Championship play-off hopes.
The highly-rated 18-year-old striker, whose performances for the Tractor Boys have attracted admiring glances from a clutch of leading Barclays Premier League clubs, struck in the 24th minute after David Norris` deadlock-breaker.
Norris swept home a 17th-minute opener with a neat left-foot finish and Wickham`s strike put Paul Jewell`s men 2-0 up and in total control.
Jay Rodriguez hit back for Burnley in the 68th minute with a well-taken strike to make it 2-1 but there was to be no equaliser for Eddie Howe`s men as Ipswich held on.
The Clarets` hopes of a top-six finish are beginning to fade and they have now picked up just one point from their last four matches.
Ipswich are effectively playing for pride in the remainder of the campaign as they are safe from the drop but too far adrift of the top six to realistically claim a top-six berth.
Burnley began the brighter as winger Ross Wallace drilled a shot wide from 18 yards in the eight minute.
Yet the visitors gradually steadied themselves and they began to move through the gears.
In the 16th minute, Tractor Boys striker Jason Scotland engineered the space to hit a shot from 12 yards which Tyrone Mears did superbly well to block.
The respite did not last long for the hosts, however, as an outswinging corner from Jimmy Bullard fell to Norris and he fired home left-footed from 12 yards to put Ipswich 1-0 up.
They should have claimed a second moments later after Bullard`s free-kick fell to Scotland six yards from goal but he fired over when well placed.
The bustling Scotland then saw a shot blocked by Shane Duffy, but his side`s dominance was soon rewarded when a delightful move culminated in Wickham finding the net.
A fine passing sequence saw the ball worked out to Norris on the right flank and he crossed for Wickham to head in from 12 yards out.
Clarets boss Eddie Howe made a tactical switch in the 37th minute, replacing Wallace with targetman Chris Iwelumo.
Chris Eagles then fired over the bar in the 44th minute and midfielder Dean Marney then forced Arran Lee-Barrett into a smart stop.
Eagles went close again and on-loan Aston Villa striker Nathan Delfouneso also threatened before Rodriguez gave the Clarets hope with 22 minutes remaining.
The England Under-21 striker collected a pass from Marney and drove a right-footed shot into the net from 20 yards.
With 15 minutes remaining, Howe replaced Marvin Bartley with Graham Alexander but the visitors held out for all three points.
