Adeyemi Very Doubtful for Burton Trip
Thursday, 26th Oct 2017 14:50

Midfielder Tom Adeyemi is a big doubt ahead of Saturday’s trip to Burton Albion with a recurrence of his hamstring injury. Adeyemi, who returned to action during Sunday’s 1-0 defeat to Norwich City, looks certain to miss out at the Pirelli Stadium.

“Tom Adeyemi is very, very doubtful,” manager Mick McCarthy revealed. “Before the Norwich game he’d been off for three weeks, he came back and had three weeks’ training, was very good, but he’s felt his hamstring again, which is really sad because he did very well.

"He does make a difference and the lads think he makes a difference. We’ll have to wait and see.”

McCarthy says it’s been a frustrating first few months of the season for Adeyemi and also Emyr Huws, who is yet to play a minute during the campaign due to an achilles problem, but is set to feature for the U23s on Monday when they face Colchester United at Playford Road (1pm).

“He and Emyr Huws, although Emyr’s been training this week and he’s just been caught smiling, so that’s a good sign. I think they got it on camera,” the Town boss added.

“And Tom’s been the same. I had thoughts of playing a midfield three of Tom Adeyemi, Emyr and Skusey, which would be a formidable threesome.

“Thankfully though, we’ve had Tristan and Flynn who have come through and done really well. It’s really tough on the lads when they’re injured all the time.

“[But Tom is] an experienced player and, as I said, I thought he played really well, certainly in the first half on Sunday, and in the second half he started reasonably well but he just ran out of gas.

“If he’d felt his hamstring I wish he’d just said, but obviously he wasn’t injured because he continued playing, it’s just tightened up.”

Tommy Smith wasn’t among the subs on Saturday but McCarthy says the New Zealand international is fit, despite having a back spasm ahead of the Norwich match having recently returned from a hamstring injury.

“Tommy’s fine, he’d had the back problem, he’d had the hamstring so sitting on the bench for 60 minutes minutes and me saying, ‘Come on then Tom, get warmed up, go and get on the pitch’ is not always the best thing to be doing. He’d be better from the start, Tommy.”

Still sidelined are Teddy Bishop (groin), Andre Dozzell (cruciate) and Luke Hyam (knee).

Why did he play on Sunday?

Pilgrimblue added 15:29 - Oct 26
Time for Flynne to claim his place. I guess that Skuse never gets injured as he's so slow to stretch any muscle!

He looked shattered by the time he came off on Sunday, I think if he'd been subbed 10mins earlier whether this would've been a problem.

bit of a sick note!!! liability

The latest midfielder sick note at Ipswich...we produce a line of them only with Tom the club bought him injured!

Another injury prone player. Great.

Seasider added 17:55 - Oct 26
Oh dear me.Looks like he would play both Huws and Adeyami.

He has chopped and changed formations and personnel; but dear Skuse never.Can recall he was unable to play for short time last season and we did quite well.Back he came asap, even when not 100 per cent.

Whereas Celina, hardly ever starts and Greg Downes lost his place and now can't get it back

I wonder if Cole would be selected regardless of who our Manager is, and will I live long enough to find out,lol !!!

I do hope so,as next week will do, however if we beat the mighty Burton Albion,which midtable Mick says will be a tough one,I don't know how much longer I will have to endure his sterile football for.

Yes Mick ,I am one of the keyboard warrior's you referred disparingly about in your interview; but like all on here are supporters, myself for 55 year's, season ticket holder,and even have a brick in the wall lol

I could make a difference and improvement to our midfield :-/

Any news on bishop? I thought Flynne has been great every time I've seen him play. Midfield 3 of bishop, dozzell and Flynne in the future? Doesn't sound bad to me if they reach their potential! COYB

The futures bright in midfield, we just need them all fit and a manager that knows how to play them and have a plan B.

Adeyemi does appear to be a bit of a sick note though, shame as he looks a good player and big improvement on other we had to suffer in recent seasons.

Forget Bishop and Hyam and sadly Dozzell might not ever deliver on his potential either . We seem to be plagued by injuries all the time far more so than other clubs - Why???? How much is due to poor training methods????? or is it just bad luck
