Ipswich loanee Ryan Fraser has been ruled out for up to two months with a hamstring injury which he picked up in the club’s 1-0 defeat against QPR, according to BBC Sport.
Fraser, who has been on loan at Portman Road from Bournemouth since the start of the season, has scored 6 goals in 21 appearances for the Tractor Boys this season.
The club also announced that midfielder Cole Skuse is set to join Fraser on the operating table after being ruled out for up to six weeks with a foot injury.
In light of the 21-year-old’s injury, boss Mick McCarthy is keen to bolster his squad by signing Ben Pringle on loan from Fulham, initially for a month.
Pringle hasn’t featured for the Cottagers since a 4-1 win over former club Rotherham in December last year and will be desperate to be involved in some first-team action under McCarthy.
Ipswich have slipped out of the play-off places after only managing to muster up two wins in their last six games.
McCarthy’s men will be hoping to put the pressure on sixth-placed Sheffield Wednesday by grabbing 3 points at Bristol City, in what will be Lee Johnson’s first game in charge of the Robins.
Ipswich fans do you think you’ll struggle without your star winger in the team? With both Fraser and Skuse out for at least six weeks, do you think Ipswich are going to struggle to keep up with the play-off contenders?
