Sheffield United striker Leon Clarke is pushing for a recall
Sheffield United defender Kieron Freeman is back in contention after missing the last three games due to a rib injury.
The Blades will be without George Baldock (calf) so Freeman could step into the right wing-back role.
Striker Leon Clarke and attacking midfielder David Brooks are among those pushing for recalls.
Ipswich will be without midfielder Tom Adeyemi (hamstring). Forward David McGoldrick, who had been carrying a hamstring problem, was released early from international duty with the Republic of Ireland, but is expected to be in contention.
New Zealand defender Tommy Smith is also fit again following his hamstring problem, as is Adam Webster (ankle), Tristan Nydam (groin) and midfielder Flynn Downes (thigh).
