Norwood to Undergo Operation
Saturday, 5th Oct 2019 18:07

Town boss Paul Lambert says striker James Norwood will undergo a minor operation on his groin but expects him to be fit for the Blues’ next League One game at Accrington in a fortnight.

Norwood, who was subbed in the 71st minute during today’s 1-0 win at Fleetwood due to the injury, has been suffering with the problem since he was with Tranmere and has been nursed through the last few games.

“James will need a little operation I think, which hopefully [won’t keep him out for] too long.” Lambert said.

“He needs it done. If we could get him through the game last week and this game then it was always the plan to get a little nick and hopefully he’ll be fit for Accrington.

“It’s only a small thing but it’s been enough to hinder the lad. Once he gets that done I’m sure he’ll be right as rain.”

He added: “It’s just a wee nerve thing in the groin that he needs to get sorted. When that’s healed he will be OK.”

Kane Vincent-Young was subbed at half-time against the Cod Army as a precaution, also due to a groin problem.

“Kane [came off] for a little groin injury so we couldn’t take the risk with him, the break has come at the right time," Lambert said. "One or two lads have been carrying a little bit.”

I guess this has been holding him back in recent weeks as Norwood was flying at the beginning of the season. Best wishes for a speedy recovery JayNor.

The injured players will get a couple of weeks break which is a good thing. No need to risk players mid week.

Great time to do it and have him firing on all cylinders for the rest of the season.

Just goes to show that the break has come at right time! Just imagine the side we'd be fielding if the Wycombe game hadn't been called off!!

Don't get me wrong I like Norwood as a player, he's always busy and on the shoulder of defenders but jesus how many one and ones is this guy going to miss! Should have buried his chance today!

slightly concerning how many players out injured even minor knocks or not. We have close history of this.. Wondering if it maybe rotation that’s the issue. I’m likely to be wrong!

Is this the real reason Lambo called off the Wycombe game, ( under the guise of international call ups)? Would make sense now.

Get better sooner. I am over for the Rotheram game from Germany and will be singing with the best of us.

Perhaps they could stick in a gastric band while they're at it?
And perhaps some CBT to remind him he's in Div One and isn't the Billy Big B******cks of the Football league.
