Lambert Delighted to See Huws and Nolan Return
Thursday, 26th Sep 2019 09:14
Town manager Paul Lambert is pleased to have midfield duo Emyr Huws and Jon Nolan available again after injuries and back in his side.
Huws started his first league game since the final day of the 2016/17 season at the MK Dons last week after lengthy struggles with a knee injury.
In total the midfielder, 25, has made three starts and three sub appearances in all competitions in the first couple of months of this season as Town have looked to take his comeback slowly after such a lengthy absence.
Nolan suffered a calf injury towards the end of last season and then another similar problem on the other calf in pre-season before making his return as a late sub in the 3-0 victory over his old side Shrewsbury.
The 27-year-old subsequently made his first start of the campaign in the Leasing.com Trophy game against Tottenham’s U21s and then scored as he made his first League One start of the season in the 1-0 win at Stadium MK.
“Nolan has been terrific since I came to the club, he’s been great. A great goalscorer from midfield,” Lambert said.
“Emyr, I’m delighted for him to get back to what he was because it’s been a horrendous time for him, stop-start, stop-start over nearly a two-year period.
“For the mind it’s not great, for him it’s not great. The way he played at the MK Dons for that hour, I was really pleased.
“He had another half hour on Saturday [at Gillingham]. I was delighted when he came on again. It’s just about building him up every game and he and Nolan are huge attributes for us.”

How many of us who were fortunate enough to have followed ITFC back in 1980 realised at the time that we were indeed blessed to be around to witness the greatest ever Ipswich Town side?
Round Three: Eagle by Kropotkin123
Par was set at five points from one win and two draws. We managed to get a haul of seven points, which means we were two under par. Google promises me that this is an eagle.
Stick With It by Moggasknockdown
Last season, following our most recent derby day disappointment, a late Monday afternoon discussion in the office had prompted a colleague to wonder what he might say to Marcus Evans if he were stuck in a lift with him.
The Beat One Year On by ElephantintheRoom
Kevin Beattie died in September last year. He is by some distance the most popular player in the club’s history. Any poll on Town’s greatest player will be won at a canter by Beattie. He’s destined to be the first player to have a statue in his honour (if the somewhat radical design doesn’t make it look like he’s slipped off his pedestal).
