Latest from the treatment roomThe official website has an update on our first team players currently working their way back from injury.
The injury list is shortening, with the likes of Danny Williams, Anton Ferdinand, Garath McCleary and Jem Karacan stepping up their recovery in recent weeks.
He played an hour for the under 21s on Monday evening, and is now closer to being involved with the first team.
He played 45 minutes for our under 21s at Brighton on Monday night, having been out since April with a knee injury. After six months out and just half a game under his belt so far, he will still most likely be a little while away from starting a first team game.
He played 45 minutes in a practice game last week, and has a pre-planned specialist appointment next Tuesday to hopefully give him the all-clear to be involved in competitive matches.
He is back out on the training pitch, doing ball work with the team, although he has not yet taken part in a practice game. After more than a year of hard work in the treatment room he will rightly be nursed back into competitive action.
He trained well last week but felt a calf problem on Friday, which ruled him out of the under 21s game on Monday. He has undergone a scan and the results should be with us shortly as he bids to overcome a frustrating injury for him.
He played the full 90 minutes for our under 21s on Monday so is almost back to full fitness.
He is back doing outdoor multi-directional running and all being well he can join in with more training next week.
He has an appointment with a consultant soon to take another look at the knee injury which has sidelined him since the end of August.
