McCarthy concedes Ipswich Town's play-off hopes are fading

Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy admits it's now going to be a tough ask for his team to make The Championship play-offs.

Town could only draw 0-0 at home to relegation-threatened Charlton Athletic last night - with Ben Pringle and Jonathan Douglas coming the closest to finding a winner.

The result leaves Town seven points adrift of the top six.

The one positive is that they still have Sheffield Wednesday and Derby County left to play, and McCarthy says they're going to have to beat both of them to stand any chance.

Seven points out of it, we're making it harder still for ourselves.

But as I've just said to the players, we've got to stick together and make sure that we try and get as many points as we can and see where it takes us.

Hopefully that will be in the play-offs but that is looking increasingly unlikely.

MK Dons dealt double injury blow ahead of Fulham showdown

Mk Dons' survival hopes have been dealt a blow with the news that their goalkeeper David Martin has broken his hand.

The 30-year-old picked up the injury in training and will now see a specialist to determine how long he'll be out for.

To make matters worse, winger Rob Hall is also set to undergo an MRI scan on a knee injury.

Losing Dave is a big blow to everybody. Dave has been excellent for us this season and there’s no doubt we are going to miss him.

Cody came in as the number 2 but he’s the number 1 now and he has to take that opportunity. I’ve got tremendous faith in him – he’s a good young goalkeeper.

Hally is a big loss too. He was training, changed direction and he felt something in his knee. There was no-one near him, not even in a competitive environment – it was a freak one.

– Karl Robinson, MK Dons Manager
