Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy faces fresh injury worries ahead of his side’s trip to Cardiff City this weekend.

The Blues face more injury problems as David McGoldrick and Tom Lawrence missed training earlier in the week, whilst Emyr Huws is ineligible to play his parent side.

Luke Hyman – who is yet to feature for the Tractor Boys this season in all competitions – continues to miss out on the action after a previous injury was aggravated in an under-23s game.

Hyam had undergone surgery on a damaged nerve in his leg at the start of the season but returned to the squad and appeared for the youth side recently. However, the Blues midfielder, who had his injury previously diagnosed as damage to his knee, had ruptured ligaments.

Town boss Mick McCarthy said: “Luke will be glad when the season is over.

“He will be out for six weeks or so from when he did it. It’s a blow for him and for us. Looking at Saturday, Kevin Bru and Kieffer Moore are our main concerns. Kevin took a knock in training on Tuesday and Kieffer has a groin strain.

“Tom Lawrence and Didz [David McGoldrick] both missed training at the start of the week but they trained today.”

With the injury count rising for Town, many supporters were hoping that Emyr Huws’ recent form could continue. However the winger is unavailable due to terms in his loan, but was also ruled out through injury by McCarthy.

“Emyr [Huws] can’t play against Cardiff because of his loan but he’s not fit anyway. He has a tight hamstring.”
