Goalkeeper Richard Wright could be back in the Ipswich squad for the visit of Bristol City.
Wright has been out since injuring his knee ligaments in November but came through a reserve game with Wycombe in midweek and may be included on the bench.
Brian Murphy is expected to keep his place in goal after two decent games since usurping Arran Lee-Barrett while David Healy could start.
The on-loan Sunderland forward came off the bench to score the equaliser in a 1-1 draw at Scunthorpe in midweek - his first goal since February 2009 - and may be rewarded with a starting role.
Right-back Liam Rosenior will be available after illness but winger Luciano Civelli will not be back until September after a serious knee injury.
Jamal Campbell-Ryce is set to be back in Bristol City's squad.
The former Barnsley winger has missed the last five games with a calf injury but returned to training this week and is in contention to face Roy Keane's side.
The Robins beat promotion-hopefuls West Brom last Sunday and boss Gary Johnson had hoped to name a similar side this weekend.
However, Johnson has since revealed a few of his players are struggling with illness, although he refused to reveal their identity.
Patrick Agyemang has been troubled by a slight knock and the striker is a doubt, while Evander Sno is expected to return to parent club Ajax for treatment on a back injury.
Defender Jamie McAllister is a long-term absentee with a calf problem.
