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

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.
