Ipswich face a visit from Hull City this evening hoping to add to their current three-game unbeaten run.
They’re currently on 52 points, nine outside the top six with slim hopes of making a play off place. Whilst there are 30 points to play for, it would take a remarkable run by Mick McCarthy’s side to elevate themselves the high.
There cause won’t be helped by the absence of winger Mustapha Carayol.
The former Forest man has been out injured since the 2-1 victory against Sheffield Wednesday and he won’t make the game tonight.
The Gambian winger had his Nottingham Forest contract cancelled ahead of his Portman Road move, having made 32 appearances for Forest. Prior to that he’s had spells at Middlesbrough, Lincoln City, Bristol Rovers and Leeds United.
He’s made three appearances for Ipswich, scoring the winning goal at Preston North End in February before being brought off at half time. In those three games he has collectively managed just 110 minutes of football.
Carayol hasn’t settled yet at Portman Road, so he won’t be missed in the strictest sense. He’s a player that has always threatened plenty, but often flattered to deceive. He’s still only 29 and if McCarthy can get him focused, he still has the chance of making waves in the Championship.
