Ipswich Town should have midfielder Cole Skuse available for their Good Friday trip to Burton Albion.

The 31-year-old missed the recent games against Wigan Athletic and Fulham with concussion, but has now recovered.

Adam Webster, Steven Taylor, Luke Hyam, Jonas Knudsen and Giles Coke remain sidelined though.

Cole has trained and he is fine. He was the only one we were waiting on, everybody else is fine for Friday.

We had 21 players out training this morning which is great to see, so we have a full squad to choose from.

Highly-rated Ipswich Town defender Myles Kenlock has signed a new contract with the club.

The 20-year-old has been a shining light for Town this season and has now made 16 appearances for the club.

Kenlock's current deal was due to expire in the summer, but Ipswich have taken up the option to extend his stay at Portman Road until 2019.

I feel I have made a lot of progress this year and it’s been great to have been involved in the first-team squad regularly and playing games in the Championship.

I know that I have still got a lot to learn in the game but this is a great club to be learning at and I want to keep moving forward.

Norwich City midfielder Wes Hoolahan and Ipswich Town winger Tom Lawrence have both been ruled out of Friday's World Cup qualifier between the Republic of Ireland and Wales.

Hoolahan picked up a serious-looking thigh injury in Norwich's win over Barnsley on Saturday and Ireland manager Martin O'Neill told the press today that he's likely to be missing for a "number of weeks."

"Wes Hoolahan will be out of the game," O'Neill said.

"The scan came back this morning and it's bad news for us and for his club."

Lawrence will also miss the match due to a suspected hip injury and has been replaced by Liverpool's Harry Wilson.

Meanwhile, Norwich winger Jacob Murphy has been called up the England under-21s squad to face Germany and Denmark.
