Judge, Jackson, Skuse and Woolfenden All Training Ahead of Rochdale Clash
Friday, 25th Sep 2020 09:34

Alan Judge, Kayden Jackson, Cole Skuse and Luke Woolfenden are all back in training ahead of Saturday’s home game against Rochdale.

Judge missed the trip to Bristol Rovers last week having picked up a hamstring problem in the Carabao Cup tie against Fulham but manager Paul Lambert says the Irish international is on the mend.
“He’ll train this morning and we’ll see how he is,” he said. “He’s a lot better, and we’ll see how he is.”

Striker Jackson, who had been suffering with a groin injury since pre-season, returned to training a week ago. Is the 26-year-old ready to return to the squad?

“Kayden has been out for a number of weeks, so whether this one is too early for him I’m not so sure because he hasn’t really done much other than the other day with us,” Lambert continued. “We’re talking as a group, so we’ll have to wait and see how he feels.”

Midfielder Skuse suffered a knee injury in training ahead of the Cambridge friendly and Lambert says the veteran is making progress.

“Cole trained yesterday again with us, which is good,” he added. “Again, it’s still early, and he’s been out for a number of weeks, but the good thing is he doesn’t have to go in for anyone to look at his knee or anything like that. I think he felt really good yesterday, and that’s a good plus.”

Asked whether the signing of Arsenal youngster Mark McGuinness on loan means that Kane Vincent-Young, who has an achilles problem, or Luke Woolfenden, who has been sidelined with a groin issue, are expected to be out longer than expected, Lambert said that wasn’t the case.

“No, Woolfy trained yesterday as well, which is good,” he said. “I don’t know [whether he’s ready to be involved on Saturday], I need to see him this morning, but he trained yesterday and hopefully he trains again this morning and then we’ll make a decision.

“Kane’s a little longer, he’s obviously not played since the Tottenham game, but he’s doing a lot better. Again, we have to wait and see how he feels.

Quizzed on whether Vincent-Young would play before Christmas, Lambert said: “Yeah, and that’s a long, long, long time. But we hope he’s back before that.”

Lambert says no new injury problems have emerged: "We’re not too bad, I think. Everybody has come through last week OK, one or two guys are back on the grass, which is good, after injury, so we’re a little bit healthier than what we were last week."

Doesn't sound like he's totally convinced KVY will be back before Christmas...

I think we're in the best place injury wise for the last 5 years probably. A bit frustrating nursing a few back but I think we've done the right thing not risking people early. It sounds like from next week we will only really have Drinnan, Nydam (who is actually close), KVY and Morris out? Based on due backs it's only one long term injury for now. Obviously we will get some more but this is really positive.

That is a tough bench to pick for Sat!!

Well overall things are improving on the injury front, and we haven’t been able to say that for seasons now !

Hope im wrong but i fear it might be more surgery for KVY.

I am sure our wonderful and world renowned medical dept have things fully under control.

Overall that's good news, Woolfie is the main man we miss out of that bunch that are close to returning, not sure Jackson and Skuse will get back into the XI now anyway. KVY is not such good news, that sounds like a much worse injury that we were being lead to believe. We can certainly rule out seeing him in a Town shirt for a couple of months.

Think Kvy is biggest miss as he’s our answer to Trent Alexander gives us a teal attacking threat

Agreed Spanishblue we have no one who can do what KVY does on the pitch. So frustrating the fans have seen so little of him to date. Potential Prem player imo.

Well good news but the KYV injury is concerning.

If Skuse starts playing again things will go down hill, I promise you. Stick with the team and let them play

Lovemyclub74 added 13:00 - Sep 25
That's great news!!!!
Let's get behind our team and manager and stay positive and I'm sure we'll get promoted this season!!!
Oh and if we all just ignore bluearmy81 posts I'm sure he or she will get bored and hopefully leave .......lol

A fit KVY & Lancaster paired on the right.........would bring a much needed lack of fire to the last third of the pitch.
