Ipswich manager Roy Keane has no fresh injury worries ahead of the final-day visit of Sheffield United.

Both sides would have been hoping to compete for at least a play-off place this season but will instead contest a dead game at Portman Road as they head for mid-table finishes.

Teenage striker Connor Wickham has scored in the last two games and looks likely to keep his place in attack while Daryl Murphy, Liam Rosenior and Jack Colback are all set for the final games of their loan spells.

Fellow loanee David Healy is out with a knee injury while Carlos Edwards will miss out as he is still recovering from chicken pox.

Former England goalkeeper Richard Wright is fit after nearly five months on the sidelines with a knee injury and could be given a final appearance for the club before his contract expires but Damien Delaney is out.

The defender is out with an ankle injury so youngster Tommy Smith will continue.

Sheffield United midfielder Stephen Quinn is one of four absentees.

The Irishman, a virtual ever-present for the Blades this season, has undergone surgery on his toe, while Darius Henderson, Andy Taylor and Lee Williamson are all definitely out.

Striker Henderson is struggling with a hernia and midfielder Williamson has suffered a recurrence of the back problem that has dogged him since his arrival from Watford in the summer.

Goalkeeper Paddy Kenny will make only his second appearance of the season following his drugs ban and defender Gary Naysmith, who also came through his first game of the campaign against Swansea last week, looks to have put his cruciate knee ligament injury behind him.

Strikers Henri Camara and Ched Evans are vying for a place up front, the latter returning to action off the substitutes' bench last week following a long-term shoulder injury.
