Winger Ikechi Anya is also a doubt having sustained cramp in the 2-0 defeat, while defender Richard Keogh is nursing an ankle injury.

Derby have failed to win any of their last eight home league meetings with the Tractor Boys (D3 L5), last triumphing in November 2006.
The last three meetings between these sides has finished 1-0 to the away team, with David McGoldrick scoring Ipswich's winner last season.
The Rams are the first second-tier side since Rotherham in 2003-04 to score only once in their opening six games.
Ipswich have won just two of their last 14 away Championship games (D6 L6), scoring just seven goals in that time.
The Tractor Boys have used the fewest number of players so far this season (17).
