Ipswich have been hit by the news that goalkeeper Richard Wright will be out for up to four months with a knee injury.

Wright was forced off after 25 minutes of the 2-1 win at Cardiff on Sunday and scans have revealed the former England goalkeeper is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

The Blues could make an emergency loan signing as Arran Lee-Barrett, who made his debut on Sunday, is now their only senior goalkeeper after Asmir Begovic was recalled by parent club Portsmouth last week.

Town physio Matt Byard told the Club website: "Richard has a partial tear to his cruciate ligament.

"We will manage his recovery conservatively and at this stage we are very hopeful that he will not require surgery.

"You can never be exact in a recovery time but with this type of injury, we expect Richard to be out for around four months."
