Ross Wallace will miss out for Burnley through suspension.

Winger Wallace picked up his fifth booking of the season in the second half of Saturday's thrilling 3-2 comeback win over Hull and serves a one-match ban.

Clarets boss Eddie Howe has no new injury worries, but Charlie Austin remains sidelined with a dislocated shoulder.

On-loan Wolves forward Sam Vokes will be hoping for a recall to the Burnley attack alongside weekend match-winner Jay Rodriguez after dropping to the bench as Howe elected to go with a five-man midfield at the KC Stadium.

David Edgar was the unlikely hero with two goals to level the contest against Hull and the Canadian defender wants the ensuing feel-good factor to spill into the showdown with Ipswich.

"We've got to take the momentum of what was a scrappy game into Tuesday and put on a performance, for the fans especially," he said.

Captain Grant Leadbitter and goalkeeper David Stockdale are set to miss out for Ipswich.

Midfielder Leadbitter was forced off in the closing stages of Saturday's 3-2 defeat at home to Reading nursing a groin injury which has not settled down.

Stockdale missed the clash altogether with a shoulder problem and despite training a little on Sunday, recent signing Richard Wright, in his third spell with the club, will again take his place between the sticks after making his first appearance for Town in two years at the weekend.

Centre-back Ibrahima Sonko will again be assessed as he looks to return to action after over four weeks out with a hamstring injury, but fellow defender Damien Delaney (fractured foot) remains missing for around a month.

Town head into the game on the back of five successive defeats - for the first time since February 2007 - the last three of which coming via 3-2 scorelines and the most recent two of those with Paul Jewell's side leading 2-1 going into the closing stages.
