Ipswich manager Roy Keane is poised to make sweeping changes to his side for the visit of Barnsley.

Keane was livid with his side's insipid performance at Watford in midweek and admitted he would have replaced most of his team at half-time if he could.

Midfielder Owen Garvan looks certain to lose his place after he was hauled off after just 22 minutes at Vicarage Road, with David Norris expected to return to the starting XI.

Carlos Edwards, David Wright, Lee Martin, David Healy and Pablo Counago are all options available to Keane as he looks for a third home win in a row.

Goalkeeper Richard Wright could be in the squad for the first time since injuring his knee at the end of November but winger Luciano Civelli is not due back from his knee injury until September at the earliest.

Barnsley will be without injured winger Adam Hammill.

The 22-year-old summer signing from Liverpool was forced out of the midweek win over Nottingham Forest with a hamstring strain and was replaced by Iceland international Emil Hallfredsson.

Hallfredsson is a likely replacement but manager Mark Robins has other options, with Anderson De Silva and Jacob Butterfield named among the substitutes on Tuesday night.

On-loan Stoke defender Carl Dickinson is not expected to return after missing out against Forest due to knee ligament damage, so Luke Potter should continue in his absence.

Robins has no other new injury or suspension problems and is unlikely to make any other changes as his side look to make up more ground on the top six.
