Ipswich vs Swansea preview
Last Updated: 21/04/19 2:25pm
Bottom club Ipswich will again check on veteran defender James Collins ahead of the visit of Swansea on Easter Monday.
Centre-back Collins sat out the 4-0 defeat at Preston on Good Friday as he continues to manage a calf problem. Idris El Mizouni was handed his full debut in one of four changes, while 21-year-old Josh Emmanuel was substituted at the break following a tough first half.
Forward Will Keane, fit again from a hamstring injury, could be in contention to start after coming off the bench. Wales U21s striker Ellis Harrison is making progress from a back problem, while Tom Adeyemi also continues his recovery following a long-term injury lay-off.
Swansea midfielder Bersant Celina will be assessed ahead of a potential return to action against his former club. The Kosovo international, who has been carrying a foot problem, missed the 4-3 win over Rotherham through illness.
Barrie McKay marked his first start since mid-February with a goal in the comeback against the Millers, so should retain his place. Centre-back Joe Rodon is back in contention for a start following a broken metatarsal, while midfielder Leroy Fer (hamstring) continues his rehabilitation.
Ipswich are looking to complete their first ever league double over Swansea City in the 14th season in which they've faced the Swans.
This is Swansea's first league visit to Ipswich since December 2010, a 3-1 victory under Brendan Rodgers.
Paul Lambert has won his last four league matches played on Easter Monday, most recently a 1-0 away win at Leeds in April 2017 with Wolves.
Swansea have won their last three Easter Monday league matches, with this their first since a 4-1 hammering of Ipswich in April 2011.
Swansea, who are on the longest current run of defeats in the Championship away from home (seven), have not lost more in a row within the same league campaign since March 2001 (eight) when in the third tier.
Ipswich have won none of their last 33 home Championship games when conceding first (W0 D11 L22), since a 2-1 win against Leeds in January 2016.
David Prutton predicts: 1-1 (6/1)
