Match Preview

Two out for Town Jimmy Bullard and Richard Wright are Ipswich's only absentees for the visit of play-off chasing Birmingham. Midfielder Bullard, who has not featured since mid-February, has sinusitis while goalkeeper Wright, with just one Town appearance to his name this season, has a knee injury. Manager Paul Jewell told the club's official website: "Jimmy is ill and it looks as if Richard might need a little scope on his cartilage. He's had a scan and now we're waiting on the results." With no injury or suspension problems affecting those in and around Jewell's preferred matchday 16, the Town boss has the same squad at his disposal as the one which claimed a 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace on Saturday. Jay Emmanuel-Thomas, Lee Martin and Andy Drury were recalled to the starting line-up in place of Lee Bowyer, Ryan Stevenson and Josh Carson, who will all be pushing for inclusion against Blues, as will striker Michael Chopra. Birmingham will be without first-choice goalkeeper Boaz Myhill for the trip while manager Chris Hughton also faces a midfield crisis. Myhill sustained a thumb injury in the warm-up to Saturday's 2-2 draw against Bristol City and, although the extent of the problem is not yet known, he will definitely miss out at Portman Road. Colin Doyle will again take his place in goal while emerging England Under-21 stopper Jack Butland has been recalled from his loan spell at Cheltenham to provide cover on the bench. But Blues' problems do not finish there. Guirane N'Daw misses out again with his hamstring strain, with the Senegal international being assessed on an ongoing basis, while Keith Fahey will play no part due to the recurrence of his groin troubles which forced him off at the weekend. Fellow midfielder Jordon Mutch is also a doubt due to an ankle injury sustained when setting up Marlon King for his goal against the Robins. Elsewhere, defenders Jonathan Spector (thigh) and Stephen Carr (knee) continue to remain absent.
