He joins the extensive list of players unavailable to the North End boss, with almost a whole team out for the season due to their respective injuries.

Billy Bodin and Josh Harrop (both ACL) have missed the majority of the season and have been joined in the treatment room in recent weeks by Tom Barkhuizen (knee), Andrew Hughes (hamstring) and Brad Potts (knee).

Skipper Tom Clarke (knee) and goalkeeper Connor Ripley (ankle) have also been on the sidelines in recent weeks, plus Manchester City loanee Brandon Barker, who ended his season with a hamstring strain against Reading.

The PNE boss did suggest at his pre-match press conference that the likes of Josh Ginnelly – who was given his debut at West Bromwich Albion last weekend – and Joe Rafferty could be given an opportunity to impress during the final four games of the season.

Emyr Huws, Freddie Sears, Grant Ward (all knee), and Jack Lankester (back) are all definitely out for the Suffolk side ahead of their long Bank Holiday trip to the north west.
