Arran Lee-Barrett is set to face Coventry City in this weekend’s Championship fixture.

Brian Murphy suffered ankle ligament damage before Sunday’s game at Leicester, handing Lee-Barrett a start at the Walkers Stadium.

The 25-year-old spent some time at the Ricoh Arena in 2007 as cover, giving him a route back into the professional ranks after playing for Weymouth.

He moved on to Hartlepool before joining Ipswich, where an earlier injury to Richard Wright has handed him a first-team chance this season.

Saturday’s clash at Portman Road is the reverse fixture of the openng game of the season when two early goals gave the Sky Blues all three points against an Ipswich team who had been expected to challenge at the right end of the table.

Despite some improved recent form however, Roy Keane’s side lie only four points above the relegation zone.
