Ipswich midfielder Luke Hyam will face a late fitness test after picking up a hamstring problem.

Midfielder Giles Coke (knee) is out, along with central defender Piotr Malarczyk (kidney stone).

Nottingham Forest striker Jamie Ward (hamstring) was forced off early in the home defeat to Bristol City and will be monitored.

Teenage striker Oliver Burke missed two games with a broken bone but is expected to be available.
