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.
