Lambe set for Ipswich recall in Carling Cup

Bermuda international Reggie Lambe is in line for a first team recall when an injury-ravaged Ipswich Town team take on West Bromwich Albion at Portman Road in today's Carling Cup quarter-finals.

The Tractor Boys have almost an entire team injured, ineligible or suspended and boss Roy Keane admits he has no choice other than to field a team made up of youngsters.

Keane said yesterday: “We'll have to go with a young team once again, which I've not been pleased about over the last month or two because we've played too many youngsters at the same time.

“But we don't really have a choice tomorrow night as a lot of players are cup-tied, Damien Delaney's suspended, Márton Fülöp's struggling with an ankle injury and Gareth McAuley and Mark Kennedy are not available, so we'll just have to go with the younger boys. It's not ideal, but there's nothing we can do about it.”

In addition to Fülöp, a doubt with an ankle injury, McAuley (achilles) and Kennedy (hamstring), Connor Wickham (thigh), Luke Hyam (hamstring) and Alan Quinn (groin) are among those on the treatment table.

Loanees Rory Fallon, Jake Livermore, Jack Colback and Gianni Zuiverloon are all unavailable having played in the competition for their parent clubs earlier in the season.

Lambe, 19, has made three appearances for Town so far this season.
