Bishop: Great to Be Back Out on the Pitch
Thursday, 2nd Jan 2020 16:26
Midfielder Teddy Bishop was delighted to get back into first-team action as a late sub at Wycombe yesterday after his latest injury setback.
The 23-year-old, who suffered medial ligament damage at the Interwetten Cup in Germany in July, came on in the 88th minute against the Chairboys.
"It's great to be back out on the pitch and it would have been nice if we had been able to get the three points," Bishop told the club site.
"But it was a better performance than we have had in the last few weeks so I think we'll take it and move on. I was obviously pleased to be involved.
"There haven't been any U23 games for me to play in but I was still feeling ready to come back because I've been training for the last four weeks or so and that has all gone well.
"My fitness is up there so hopefully I can take the minutes I got against Wycombe into the next block of games.
"Wherever it is, and whatever competition, I just need to get minutes to kickstart my season.”
Bishop could well make his first start of the season when the Blues face Exeter City at St James' Park in the third round of the Leasing.com Trophy on Saturday.

Climbing Up the Walls by Mullet
The world has undoubtedly changed and with it, until some indeterminate point, football has done too. Not only have we seen another club disappear as the fans of Macclesfield joined those of Bury in being locked out of the game, we might count ourselves lucky to only be locked out of Portman Road for our own good.
A Head in the Right Place by NormEmerges
A nice victory against Wigan, well played the Town, and you achieved it without what many consider our best player. For the second match in a row, Flynn Downes was left out because “his head wasn’t in the right place”.
Pyramid Strong by Mullet
On Friday the members of League One voted by majority to instigate a salary cap. In doing so they not only limit everybody in the division to spending £2.5m per season, but they limit themselves in making the transition to established second tier side or beyond.
We Should Encourage the Club and the League to Stream All Games by rugbytomc
In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
Euro Glory for Town by clivebleedingthomas
This was the season in which we had a realistic chance of winning the Treble - it sounds like complete fantasy now, but it happened. Our hopes of FA Cup glory had been finished, along with Kevin Beattie’s career as a Town player, at Villa Park.
