Ipswich top scorer ruled out of Brentford clash

Ipswich will be without top scorer Daryl Murphy when they host Brentford on Saturday.

Murphy tore his calf playing for Ireland against Slovakia and has missed both of Ipswich’s games since the international break.

The 33-year-old, who scored home and away against the Bees last season, has yet to recover from the injury and will miss out.

Murphy was the Championship’s leading striker last term, hitting 27 goals, and has 10 in this campaign.

Ben Pringle, on loan from Fulham, and former Brentford midfielder Jonathan Douglas are both likely to be involved.
