Paul Hurst was asked on Wednesday if he was confident the Blues would win their appeal, with the Ipswich boss replying: “I wouldn’t say confident. I know what should happen but whether it does or not is a different matter.

“Again, I think we should find out today, I’m led to believe. I certainly hope so, it’s only right that you should know as early as possible.

“It can’t take that long to make a decision, whichever way. Hopefully we’ll find out and then you can prepare.”
