their Euro 2012 qualifiers because of a finger injury and been replaced by Frank

three goals in five league games this season. Ipswich keeper David
Stockdale, who let in seven at Peterborough last week, is understudy to
first-choice Joe Hart. That means Fielding becomes the second Championship
keeper in the squad.
