The injury list looks to be growing again for Ipswich Town with news that left-back Mark Kennedy has been ruled out for around three weeks after suffering a hamstring injury in the defeat against Coventry City at the weekend.

The 34-year-old limped off the pitch after seeming to sustain the injury in the last few minutes of the match on Saturday, and Roy Keane will now have to wait for the results of a scan to determine the extent of the problem. It is the second time Kennedy has suffered such a layoff this season.

‘It’s a blow for us and a blow for Sparky,’ the Town boss told the Ipswich Town Official Website; ‘It’s not the same hamstring as he did against Middlesbrough at the start of the season, it’s the other leg but it’s disappointing and we will miss him because he’s an experienced player.’

Whether Kennedy’s absence will prove to be that much of a blow is difficult to say at present, with Town already having needed to make do without him in the earlier weeks of the campaign. However, the injury for the ex-Cardiff man leaves Town looking a little thin on full-backs again with Darren O’Dea ruled out until late November after surgery last week. Keane is known to be looking for another possible loan deal but whether defensive cover is the priority is debatable.
