Garbutt and Bishop Could Be Back For Burton
Friday, 14th Feb 2020 11:04
Town could have Luke Garbutt and Teddy Bishop back for Saturday’s game against Burton Albion at Portman Road after injury, while Gwion Edwards is available again after his two-match ban.
“I’ll see how he is this morning,” Lambert said when asked about on-loan Everton man Garbutt, who has been out for the last two matches with a thigh strain. “Garbs is one of those kids that’s really fit, and again I’ll see how he is.
“Around about the place he’s upbeat, he’s quite bubbly, Bish, quite jovial that way, but in the private moments you just don’t know how they are.”
Still absent is Kane Vincent-Young following the second of his two groin operations but Lambert hopes he won’t have to wait too long for the ex-Colchester man to be back in his squad.
“Maybe the end of the month for him,” he added. “He was great when he was playing and obviously he had the injury and it gave us a blow on that side but predominantly he’s been great, so him coming back is going to be a major plus for us.”
Lambert says Danny Rowe, who had a knee operation to tidy up his knee, will be back around the same time.
“Danny will be not too far behind Kane, hopefully,” he said. “We’ll see how he goes.”
On Tristan Nydam, who has been ruled out for the season having undergone an operation to clear up some scar tissue in the ankle he injured in pre-season, Lambert said: “It was a horrific injury he had, I saw it right in front of me at Notts County, and it wasn’t a nice one to see or hear, so he’s obviously gone back in and got another one done.
“Listen, the most important thing is that he can walk and he’s not massively over hurt with it. Not playing – hopefully, he gets the shoots of recovery soon.”

Reigning Champions Outfought By Town by clivebleedingthomas
The 1994/95 season ended with the Town bottom of the Premier League with only seven wins to their name. Nevertheless the season had its bright spots - Adam Tanner scoring to earn a 1-0 win at Anfield, our first victory there; the Budgies being relegated on the last day of the season, having accumulated 16 more points (43) than we managed; and in September 1994 this match against reigning Premier League Champions, Manchester United.
Lambert's Goals Take Town to the Top by clivebleedingthomas
The summer of 1974 had been an anxious period for Town fans. Will he or won’t he leave us? That question hung over us as uncertainty grew about Bobby Robson’s future. Don Revie had left Leeds to take up the England job and Bobby was seen as his likely successor.
And Along Came Jim by Moggasknockdown
Life without football is a funny old thing. Currently, in these most testing of times, the idea of missing football might seem like a triviality, an inconsequential itch amidst an existential crisis. Many of us miss the routine of it, the communality and regularity of it.
City Floored by Brilliant Viljoen by clivebleedingthomas
My father, Owen Sturley Nunn, known as 'Bob' to his many friends at Portman Road, kept an archive of newspaper reports of notable Town matches. I inherited the archive upon his death in 1987 and continued to keep reports of noteworthy games.
The Way Back From Here Will Be Long, But There is a Way by SomethingBlue
It's a delicate situation now, perhaps an existential one. People need to stay engaged, focused and angry – which I know isn't easy to do given the endless stream of kicks in the teeth. But articulated vocally and consistently – which hasn't ever happened yet – it will have an effect in time.
