Nolan Glad to Be Over Nightmare Injury
Monday, 2nd Sep 2019 16:58
Midfielder Jon Nolan is glad to be finally over the calf injury which saw him miss pre-season and the opening weeks of the campaign.
The 27-year-old returned as a 73rd-minute sub against his previous club Shrewsbury on Saturday and is expected to start tomorrow night’s Leasing.com Trophy game against Tottenham’s U21s at Portman Road.
“It’s been the longest few months of my life but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel now,” said in an interview in Saturday’s match programme.
“It all stems from the injury I had last year, a calf problem on the left side.
"I knew it wasn’t right over the summer so I had a scan in Liverpool and that showed that I should have rested it over the last few weeks of last season.
“It was a ‘six-week injury’ so my season should have finished early but I tried to train on it.
"That meant I couldn’t do any work in the summer and then when I did start coming back, my right one went.
"It’s been an absolute nightmare but hopefully I’m over it now and can push on.”

Climbing Up the Walls by Mullet
The world has undoubtedly changed and with it, until some indeterminate point, football has done too. Not only have we seen another club disappear as the fans of Macclesfield joined those of Bury in being locked out of the game, we might count ourselves lucky to only be locked out of Portman Road for our own good.
A Head in the Right Place by NormEmerges
A nice victory against Wigan, well played the Town, and you achieved it without what many consider our best player. For the second match in a row, Flynn Downes was left out because “his head wasn’t in the right place”.
Pyramid Strong by Mullet
On Friday the members of League One voted by majority to instigate a salary cap. In doing so they not only limit everybody in the division to spending £2.5m per season, but they limit themselves in making the transition to established second tier side or beyond.
We Should Encourage the Club and the League to Stream All Games by rugbytomc
In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
Euro Glory for Town by clivebleedingthomas
This was the season in which we had a realistic chance of winning the Treble - it sounds like complete fantasy now, but it happened. Our hopes of FA Cup glory had been finished, along with Kevin Beattie’s career as a Town player, at Villa Park.
