There is also a return for young striker Ben Morris, who suffered a similar injury in February and has been out since.

Also involved is Grant Ward, who will play as a trialist as part of his rehabilitation, which has been undertaken with Ipswich after he was released by the Blues in the summer.
Speakin last week, manager Paul Lambert played down the chances of Ward returning to the club on a permanent contract.
"No, not really," the Town boss said when asked if Ward could re-sign. "That's not my thinking that one."
Ipswich Town U23: Przybek, O'Reilly, Fehrenbach, Ndaba, Clements, Gibbs, Ward (T), Hughes, Morris, Folami, Sears.
Subs: Alley, Stewart, Foudil, K Brown, Scott.
