Ipswich are again without goalkeeper Stephen Henderson as they travel to league leaders Cardiff.

The 24-year-old loanee missed the FA Cup third round defeat at Aston Villa with an ankle injury and could be sidelined for a further two weeks. Scott Loach is set to continue in goal as Town aim to become only the second team to avoid defeat in the Welsh capital.

Mick McCarthy is boosted by the news that midfielder Andy Drury has recovered from the virus that saw him miss the club's last two games while Bradley Orr is expected to return at right-back after being cup-tied at the weekend.

McCarthy could hand a debut to Frank Nouble, who signed from Wolves for an undisclosed fee this week, while fellow strikers David McGoldrick and Aaron Mclean are hoping for full debuts after appearing as substitutes against Villa.
