McGoldrick Injury Not Serious
Wednesday, 11th Jan 2017 21:46
Town have confirmed that striker David McGoldrick’s hamstring injury should only keep him out of action for a couple of weeks. The Republic of Ireland international suffered the problem in training on Friday and missed the FA Cup draw with Lincoln City on Saturday.
“Didz will be out for the weekend and the cup replay [at Lincoln on Tuesday],” Manager Mick McCarthy told the club site.
“He had a scan yesterday and fortunately it’s not too bad. We are probably looking at another week or two.”
McCarthy says skipper Luke Chambers and midfielder Cole Skuse, who both missed the Imps clash with knee injuries, should be back for Saturday’s home game against Blackburn, but left-back Myles Kenlock remains a doubt with the calf injury he suffered at QPR.
“Hopefully Chambo and Skusey will be back for Saturday and we see how Myles is,” McCarthy added.
Meanwhile Tommy Smith and Luke Hyam, who are undergoing rehab after back and knee surgery respectively, are back out training, playing head tennis and running.
The duo are pencilled in for a return to action in the U23s in February, which was also the expectation with midfielder Teddy Bishop, who has been out with an ankle injury, however, McCarthy now hopes the 20-year-old might be back in a fortnight.

Has Mick Found a Formula? by Pickersblue22
On November 22nd, Exeter City were bottom of League Two, bereft of confidence, ideas, and without a home win since April, all the signs were pointing to a season of struggle. A 1-0 win at Leyton Orient that night was the start of an marvellous 12-match unbeaten run, containing 10 wins. That run took them from below the dreaded dotted line to the fringes of the automatic promotion places, and was only ended by defeat in the Devon derby at Plymouth on Saturday.

Another Post-Christmas Carol (Nightmare on Portman Street) by dusth
Christmas had passed and the sales, when all good folks looked for a fair bargain, were no longer in full swing. In fact they were over. Poor Mick McCratchitt was still at his desk at old Scrooge's Ticket and Footballing Agency, looking on his iPad at the bargains that might have been when young Tel his assistant brought him a bowl of warm water and a teabag. "This'll cheer you up boss!" "Thanks, old lad," said Mick and plunged his hands into the bowl. It instantly froze.
