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.”

Wing Wonders (Part Two) by ElephantintheRoom
As the sixties morphed into the seventies, wing wonders at Portman Road were a bit like London buses. Four had come along at once, though in truth one or two (like those same London buses) were also easy to miss.
2019/20 - Grating Expectations by tractorboykent
A lot of comments at the moment would suggest that we are in the midst of a(nother) crisis. Whilst the league table doesn’t reflect that, the perception is likely more based on our own expectations of where we’d be at this stage.
Wing Wonders (Part One) by ElephantintheRoom
It’s a curiosity of Town’s great years that the two big successes – winning the league under Alf Ramsey and the UEFA Cup under Bobby Robson were based on teams without true wingers.
John Cobbold’s Ace Gardener by ElephantintheRoom
For newer Town supporters perhaps, the name Colin Viljoen has disappeared into the mists of time. But for those of us who started supporting Town in the 60s his name is fondly recalled as a true great. His highlights reel alone (alas it exists only in memory) would mark him out as someone special.
Big Al by ElephantintheRoom
When the Kevin Beattie statue is revealed, I suspect it will be his great pal and fellow central defensive titan, Allan Hunter, who will do the revealing. What will be going through Big Al’s mind I wonder? Sadness at his friend’s passing – but mixed with fierce pride perhaps.
