Lambert: Bennetts and Vincent-Young Doing Well, Thomas Only Concern From Tuesday
Friday, 19th Feb 2021 10:25
Keanan Bennetts and Kane Vincent-Young are both making progress with their injuries, while Luke Thomas was the only player to pick up a new knock during Tuesday’s 0-0 home draw with Northampton.
“We’re not too bad, obviously wee Luke got hit on Tuesday night, other than that I think everybody’s OK,” manager Paul Lambert said, although he anticipates the on-loan Barnsley man being OK to be involved against Oxford.
“We just had a recovery day yesterday and the guys that didn’t play did did a little bit of training yesterday and we’ll see how they are again today.”
On-loan Borussia Mönchengladbach winger Keanan Bennetts has been out of action since suffering a groin problem in the Burton Albion match in mid-December but Lambert says the 21-year-old is nearing a return having played for the U23s earlier this month.
“He’s doing well, we’ll see how he is,” he said. “Keanan’s obviously been out since the Burton game and we’ll see how he is. But he’s doing alright.”
Right-back Kane Vincent-Young was hit by a new injury setback a fortnight ago when he hyper-extended his knee, but Lambert says the 24-year-old is also progressing.
“He’s doing alright, he’s another lad who is doing OK,” he said. “He’s still doing his rehab, he’s with the physios at the minute. Hopefully it’s not too long before we see him back.
“As I said before, it’s a long, long time since he’s kicked a ball in earnest. It’s been a big blow for him and a big blow for us.”

Fans, media and pundits always seem to target the manager, even Bobby Robson was targeted in his time. However, he was rightly allowed four of five mediocre seasons before starting to make real progress.
They Shoot Horses, Don't They? by Theipswich
Given the circumstances in which we supporters find ourselves at our lowest point in 64 years and with a level of communication befitting Lord Lucan, I have penned an open letter to our president Marcus Evans, as I am certain I would not have the courtesy of a reply if I were to write to the club:
