Miller, Clifton's captain, returned from Great Britain's Atlanta trip with a calf injury and then dislocated a shoulder while swimming. She has been at Lilleshall National Sports Centre for intensive treatment but still remains doubtful. "With the Olympics closing in, Tammy's first consideration must be to get completely fit," Culliford said.
Only three of Ipswich's squad are non-internationals, and with a midfield line up of the former England captain Sandie Lister, Tracy Fry, Debbie Rawlinson and Lucy Youngs, they look formidable favourites.
Clifton, seeking their first National title, will be no walkover, though, with their strong Welsh contingent. Ipswich will be well aware that their opponents, on the way to the final, have accounted for Slough, Balsam Leicester and Chelmsford.Reuse content
