Who's in, who's out

Lions boss Ian Holloway has drafted new loan signing Ryan Fredericks straight into his squad for Saturday's Den clash with Ipswich Town (3pm).

Ryan, who can operate at right-back or in midfield, was signed on a 93-day loan from Tottenham Hotspur this afternoon.

New Den boss Ollie, in charge of his first home match since taking over the managerial reins 12 days ago, has the luxury of a near-full squad to choose from.

Midfielder Liam Trotter missed three games over the Christmas period with a knee injury but is in contention for a place in the starting XI after returning to action as a late sub at Huddersfield last Saturday.

Skipper Paul Robinson (thigh), Scott Malone (ribs) and Liam Feeney (hamstring) could all be pressing for a first-team return too, although striker Jermaine Easter sits out the second of his three-match ban following his red card at Southend United.

Meanwhile Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy has confirmed that a quartet of key players have recovered from injury and will be available for selection on Saturday.

Luke Chambers (hamstring), Aaron cresswell (knee), Cole Skuse (dead leg) and Daryl Murphy (thigh) were all sidelined for Wednesday night's 3-2 FA Cup replay defeat at Preston North End.

However all four players returned to training on Thursday and will be in contention for a place in the starting line-up at The Den.

Striker Sylvan Ebanks-Blake remains sidleined after sustaining a hamstring injury just 28 minutes into his Town debut in the original FA Cup tie against preston nearly two weeks ago.
