Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy says midfielder Teddy Bishop has been out of the team for "longer than necessary" because of injury.

The 19-year-old made 36 appearances for Town last season as they reached the Championship play-offs.

But he has yet to appear this season following a hamstring problem.

"We want him fully fit when he returns because there are plenty of games left and he's an important player for us," McCarthy told BBC Radio Suffolk.
