Lambert: QPR Interest Definitely Unsettled Judge
Friday, 23rd Aug 2019 11:44
Town boss Paul Lambert believes the summer interest from QPR unsettled midfielder Alan Judge but says the Irish international is now getting closer to his best form after a slow start to the season following the broken wrist he suffered in June which saw him miss all but 45 minutes of the pre-season friendly programme.
“He's doing well,” Lambert said when asked if the 30-year-old was getting close to making his first League One start of the season.
“I thought the other night was the best he's been since he's come back from his injury.
“I don't think he was performing at the heights he was performing, and I thought the other night he was very good when he came on. He's getting there. He's definitely getting there."
"I think the risk definitely unsettled him because he couldn't train with us because we couldn't make contact with him in case he fell and broke it or refractured it.
“Now he's totally fine to do that and the other night was the best he's been, but I understand it because I think he was all over the place with everything going on in the summer.”
"You can't keep everybody happy, but you have to play in the role that I ask you to play.”
