Ipswich manager Roy Keane has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the visit of struggling Plymouth.

Keane saw his side climb to 15th in the Championship - their highest league position of the season - with a 1-0 win at home to Barnsley on Saturday and will name the same squad.

Goalkeeper Brian Murphy is yet to concede a goal at Portman Road since he made his debut in February and he will continue as Town look for an eighth home win of the season.

Sunderland loanee Daryl Murphy will continue up front after he netted his sixth goal in 11 starts against the Tykes while David Healy will be hoping to partner him in place of Pablo Counago.

Goalkeeper Richard Wright is close to a return to the squad after a knee injury but Argentinian winger Luciano Civelli is out until the Autumn as he struggles to recover from his own knee injury.

Plymouth central defender Kari Arnason is an injury doubt.

The Iceland international suffered a hip injury during the latter stages of Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Scunthorpe but hobbled on as three substitutes had already been used.

On-loan Burnley full-back Richard Eckersley - recalled at left-back in place of Chris Barker - is also an injury doubt after suffering an ankle injury.

Eckersley was replaced by substitute Barker after 23 minutes at Glanford Park.

With Arnason and Eckersley struggling, Barker - who can play at centre-back or left-back - comes into consideration along with new on-loan West Ham central defender Bondz N'Gala, who was an unused substitute at the weekend.

Winger Craig Noone (knee) is ruled out.
