Blackburn Rovers striker Danny Graham is a doubt for the visit of Ipswich with a groin problem after limping out of the loss at Birmingham on 1 October.

Forward Marvin Emnes and midfielder Corry Evans also went off with injury in that game but are fit for selection.

Ipswich midfielder Teddy Bishop is a major doubt after breaking his nose for the second time in a month.

Defender Adam Webster (hamstring) should be available, while midfielder Jonny Williams could be involved.
