Bersant Celina is back in contention to start for Ipswich against Aston Villa on Saturday.
Ipswich are finishing the season with a whimper because they are directly in mid-table with 12th being realistically the highest they can finish.
They are also dealing with Mick McCarthy’s departure after he left prematurely after a breakdown in relations between him and the fans over the club’s lack of progress as well as his style of play.
The off-the-field issues have clouded recent games with this one included because next season is now the focus due to having barely anything tangible to play for.
However, assistant manager Nash had a positive update about Celina in the pre-match press conference after he missed the previous game due to illness.

This game may matter a lot more to Villa due to their outside chances of finishing in second, but this is still a boost for the Tractor Boys, regardless.
Celina will add some creativity to a team which can struggle in that regard and become static in games. However, it would be a surprise to see Ipswich come away with a result in this game even though they are playing at home.
