Millwall manager Kenny Jackett is likely to stick with an unchanged side.

Sven-Goran Eriksson was shown the door by Leicester earlier this week following Millwall's shock 3-0 victory last Saturday.

Darius Henderson, who scored a hat-trick at the King Power Stadium, will be partnered by Jay Simpson in attack again.

John Marquis is still recovering from a hernia op but fellow striker Josh McQuoid, who has been out through illness, scored for the reserves in midweek to put himself in the frame for a return to the squad.

Midfielder Therry Racon is also pushing for a spot on the bench after recovering from the ankle injury he suffered on his debut back in August.

Ipswich boss Paul Jewell is hopeful Ibrahima Sonko and Damien Delaney will both be fit.

Sonko missed Saturday's 1-0 home defeat to Crystal Palace with a thigh injury while fellow defender Delaney, who stepped in to replace the former Stoke man, was forced off midway through with a foot problem.

Sonko has returned to training ahead of the trip to The Den and will be available should he not suffer any ill-effects, while Delaney, who is not quite as advanced in his recovery, will be hoping an injection in his foot can put him into contention.

Regardless, Jewell will definitely have to reshuffle his backline to cover the suspension of Aaron Cresswell, who saw red against the Eagles and now serves a one-match ban.

Michael Chopra will start against the Lions after dropping to the bench last weekend and coming on as a second-half substitute.

Jewell on Thursday revealed the striker has recently spent time at the Sporting Chance Clinic to address his gambling addiction and had failed to train for three weeks, only leaving to play matches. But he has trained with his team-mates this week and is "raring to go" according to Jewell.
