Walsh injury blow

City midfielder Liam Walsh will be unavailable for selection for up to 10 weeks after suffering a torn knee ligament against Ipswich Town.

Walsh was replaced by Joe Morrell in the 54thminute at Portman Road after limping off.

Frank Fielding is back in contention for selection after coming through a full 90 minutes for the Under-23s against Derby County on Friday, following his recovery from viral meningitis, while club captain Bailey Wright is also available.

Matty Taylor is two weeks away from fully fitness as he recovers from a hip flexor strain.

Korey Smith is continuing his rehabilitation from a knee injury by running on the AlterG machine that supports bodyweight while improving fitness.
