Jonathan Grounds is back in full training, Garry Monk confirmed yesterday.
The defender has been out since February’s win at Sheffield Wednesday after damaging his medial knee ligaments.
The injury was thought to have ended Grounds’ season but the 30-year-old has recovered well under a strict regime.
Monk has been considering his options ahead of Ipswich Town’s visit to St. Andrews tomorrow but the game may have arrived slightly too early for Grounds.
Craig Gardner is doubtful and Sam Gallagher is out. However, David Davis is in contention for a starting place and young attacker Odin Bailey may be on the bench.
