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.

“His delivery and his set plays and his general play have been very, very good but we’ll see how he is. He feels a lot better within himself, but we still have to wait and see.”

Regarding Bishop, who has had a minor knee problem, he added: “Bish trained the other day. Again, he’s another where we’ll see how he is, if he’s okay then we’ll look at him. But the thing with Bish like any other season, he’s not played much football.”

Asked how the 23-year-old has felt about his latest injury setback, Lambert added: “He’s been alright around about the place, but as soon as the lads drive out the gate, you never know what they’re feeling.

“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.”

Regarding Edwards’s return, he added: “Gwion’s back which is good. So, we’ll see how he feels, but he’s been training so there’s no problem injury-wise with him.”

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.”

Despite the setback Lambert says the 20-year-old can go on to have a successful career.

“He could do, and hopefully that’s what’s going to happen,” he said. “Football is a really dangerous game because you never know because the slightest injury can put you out, a real bad injury you think you can come through it. So, in football, you need a lot of luck, a helluva lot of luck.”

So what?
We could stick Sala and Pogba in this team and still end up 14th in the table.

TimmyH added 11:11 - Feb 14
Well at least that's some good news, what about Kane Vincent Young?...could do with him back.

SouperJim added 11:32 - Feb 14
It's right there in the article Timmy.

We need Garbutt, he knows how to kick a stationary ball, no one else seems able to.

I hope I’m wrong but the way lambert speaks about bishop has been my feeling for the past 2-3 years.. the lad suffers with mental health.. no player can get all the injuries he’s had over the past 2-3 seasons... I think it gets hidden by the clubs when players are suffering mentally.. not just at ITFC but football in general.. like I said I hope I’m wrong.. the lad is riddled with talent and we need him on the pitch!

Some good news at last . Pity it’s not against promotion rivals that they are fit for. We desperately need KVY, but I don’t think he’s even kicked a ball yet or played a game yet has he? He won’t be up to speed.

Why do we have so many bloody injuries to key players?? This has gone on for YEARS now.

ArnieM added 11:50 - Feb 14
Tractor boy 1985. The Club have a duty of care to their employees ( players), and it’s against the law to divulge their medical history. Which is why 7s fans , rightfully, never learn the real cause of a players medical history.

Must sign Garbutt permanently , but sorry to say Teddy Bishop should really look for another career , is never going to play continuously for a season .

TimmyH added 11:56 - Feb 14
About VKY...yes it is and isn't there in the article, vague to say the least.

Tractorboy1985 added 12:02 - Feb 14
@ArnieM why do they campaign about ‘speaking out’ then? Not just about sexuality it’s been said about mental health too! Too many footballers for me are suffering and it’s hidden up and us the fans are fed a load of bull!! If we knew the facts from time to time people wouldn’t be so harsh in their judgement ie made of glass!

Those two back would be a big plus, but I'm not holding my breath. I expect to see them on the bench at best.

Pecker added 12:32 - Feb 14
Some very positive news for a change. Top 2 here we come.

Kickingblock added 13:45 - Feb 14
Personal issues, mental health etc. are for those that need to know and only aired and shared when the individual is comfortable doing so. It's
none of my business

Kickingblock added 13:49 - Feb 14
I appreciate that you won't be so harsh on an out of sorts player if you really knew what they were going through. I think that constructive criticism and positive encouragement is the best way to get the most out of people.

Kickingblock added 13:56 - Feb 14
I hope that it's the Burton fans going home miserable tomorrow and not me.
The walk of shame through the away fans after last week's match was hard to bear.

Karlosfandangal added 14:26 - Feb 14
Well silly me at the beginning of the season I put £10 on us to be Champions £10 on promotion and £10 on Norwood to be League 1 top scorer.

O why o why did I have so much faith in Ipswich Town.

ThaiBlue added 16:47 - Feb 14

I think the physio at Ipswich is on commission it's not Dr Harold Shipman by any chance ?

Wow thanks for the brilliant news Phil really makes the 160 mile round trip worth it.

hyperbrit added 20:26 - Feb 14
my take is they are being pushed too hard in training and/or the on site medics are no good,but you're spot on ArnieM it's a shocking record
