O'Dea Out for Six Weeks
Thursday, 14th Oct 2010 14:57
On-loan Town defender Darren O’Dea is out for six weeks having undergone a knee operation last week. Celtic's O’Dea suffered the problem while away with the Republic of Ireland last month and had been struggling with the injury since then.
Boss Roy Keane said:”Darren O’Dea had an operation last week and will probably be out for about six weeks.
“That goes to show that you need people like Damien Delaney and Tommy Smith ready to play, just like Tommy was called up half an hour before the game against Leeds.
“That’s the only blow to us over the last week or so. Darren’s done really well for us and he’s a really good lad.”
Keane says there were no new injuries amongst the senior players who have been away on international duty, while Connor Wickham is back from England U19 duty this afternoon.

Cook is No Gamechanger by BossMan
I was 12 when we won the FA Cup so saw early success in my early years as a Town fan. How spoilt I was to see Beattie, Wark, Muhren Thijssen et al.
Building a High Performance Team at ITFC by Jaime_Clapham
Change is hard. Building a team is hard. Just reflect on what it’s like within the organisations that you work in, or when you are kicking off a new project. A football club and team are no different.
Marathon Blues by wadey
As some of you may be aware, we lost our little boy Tyler on 1st April 2012, aged just 15 months old. There was no cause declared and he just passed away in his sleep. Since then, I’ve tried to raise as much money for charity in memory of him.
