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.”

Both technicly very good players in terms of keeping possession and distribution. Huws for me when fit is probably the best player at the club and he wouldn't be at the club if he hadn't had so many injuries.Nolan before he got injured last season was just starting to settle in, youve only got to look at the quality of the goals he scores to see he's a good player. Whether you could play both players in the same team lm not too sure.

Interesting queries ; and there are probably a few more names to add to the list ; but I don’t suppose PL will ever be the one to publicly raise or dwell on any downsides .As a manager of people it’s always best to avoid the negatives ,always in the hope positives will emerge : at the same time it’s a business and trading assets perhaps into the future doesn’t merit negating their possible value .
Let’s all hope ALL our injured and recovering continue to make great progress ,providing even more choices for team composition and structure .

A midfield that would grace the upper reaches of the Championship, never mind League 1. We just have to keep defence tight and get Nors firing again. Happy days at PR

IpswichToon, Bishop got injured in Germany and should be back around October.

The 4 still currently out Bish, Lancs, Morris and Sears when fit, are possibly the best crop of players in the league never mind the club.
Fit and firing, will leave players such as Nolan and Huws as squad players.
