Ipswich Town manager Paul Jewell is hopeful that he will have midfielder Grant Leadbitter available for Saturday's Championship clash with Peterborough United.
Leadbitter was the hero for Ipswich last weekend when he scored a brace against Hull City to ensure that they clawed back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 at the KC Stadium.
However, the 26-year-old had to be substituted eight minutes from time with a groin injury and there have been concerns that he could miss his side's game this weekend.
Jewell, though, remains confident that Leadbitter will take to the pitch against Peterborough at home.
"Grant strained his groin late on and we had to take him off," he told Ipswich's official website.
"He's been having treatment all week and the signs are encouraging. We think he will be okay for Saturday."
