Vincent-Young Facing 12 Weeks Out Following Second Operation
Thursday, 28th Nov 2019 13:17
Kane Vincent-Young's surgery on an adductor tendon injury on Tuesday went very well and the right-back is facing 12 weeks on the sidelines, Town have confirmed.
Manager Paul Lambert revealed that the 23-year-old was facing a further lengthy spell out following Tuesday’s 0-0 draw with leaders Wycombe.
Vincent-Young, signed from Colchester for £500,000 in August, had been believed to be close to making his return from another operation to repair a hernia, which he underwent in Doha, Qatar three weeks ago.
“These injuries have required very careful management,” Town physio Matt Byard told the club site.
“They involve two separate areas, two separate problems to resolve and both issues have resulted in surgery.
“We used Dr Muschaweck in Doha, a leading specialist in hernia repair, and for the second operation Mr Schilders in London who is an expert on adductor repair.
“The injuries have required different treatment speciality, hence the different surgeons and should provide the best long-term outcome for Kane.
“The operation on Tuesday went very well and we are looking at a recovery period of about 10 weeks before Kane will be able to start first-team training and you are looking at another two weeks or so from there.”
That means Vincent-Young won't be back in contention until late in February.

Crikey, get well soon fella. We need you.
|JewellintheTown added 13:34 - Nov 28|
He'll hopefully be like the Six Million dollar Man after all that. Although it'd be 6 Billion nowadays. " We can rebuild him. We have technology".
Hope he recovers well and sooner than expected. Too many decent players sidelined at the moment.

Of course if it had been me or you treatment would have been take ibuprofen three times a day and come back in 2months if no better. Cynical yes but probably true.

Could be like a new signing come February when we will be pushing for promotion. Get well soon Vincent speedy recovery

Very interesting that the names and locations of the surgeons are mentioned. Indicates to me that club is spending more on the treatment of injuries, and that the overall care of players is higher on the agenda than it has been for a while. Using surgeons of this calibre speaks volumes. This is another example of what Paul Lambert means when he says things like 'This is a big football club.'

He's an exciting player to watch breaking out from defense. If he can start training sooner than 12 weeks maybe he will be back for the last couple of months. Just hope this is not one of those niggling injuries that never goes away.

Just as well that Donacien has stepped up to the plate and had his best games for Town these last couple of weeks.
Get well soon KVY.
|Pendejo added 14:17 - Nov 28|
What a terrible shame for him, get well soon.
IMHO he would have been Player of the Year had he not been injured.

It's tough, but he's young, so hopefully recovery will be on target. But, I'll be surprised if we see much of him before next season to be honest - only by analogy with other injured players we have / have had. Anyway, good luck, Kane.

Why do we always seem to sign sick note players. KVY and Norwood seem to fit that category sadly. Or is it that we do not look after them properly?. McGoldrick could not string five games in a row for Town before ending up on the treatment table. Signs for Sheffield Utd and hasn't had so much as a runny nose since !.
|runningout added 16:43 - Nov 28|
I have a view that some sickies are caused by players being held back a little from playing at full pelt during games. Maybe way off mark
|dirtydingusmagee added 16:58 - Nov 28|
runningout, not fit because they only get chance to play every other week .lol
|gamezone added 17:17 - Nov 28|
Saw Tommy Smith at the game Tuesday night, lock him in and sign him up🙏🏻

Keep hearing these operations are going wonderfully well and then they break down again, who's doing them Dr Harold Shipman. Another case of brilliant PR from Paul Lambert.
|Beattiesballbag added 18:20 - Nov 28|
Probably wrongly diagnonsed for the first op !
|hyperbrit added 04:41 - Nov 29|
...there will be some very good players coming back at the most critical period of the season,and their replacements will be all the stronger for having stepped in now.This bodes well for promotion indeed.
|Linkboy13 added 10:54 - Nov 29|
Hyperbrit Ive heard that before let's face it Bishops never going to be the player he promised, Huws still looks like he's carrying a injury pale shadow of himself, Keane's not been fit since he rejoined the club and was a big mistake . Freddy Sears will be a big boost when fit because of his quality on the ball there is a lack of players in the team that can retain possession.
