Vincent-Young May Need Surgery But Will Be Back For Pre-Season
Friday, 7th May 2021 09:40

Right-back Kane Vincent-Young is expected to require a minor operation on the shoulder he injured at Shrewsbury on Tuesday but it's anticipated that he'll be fit and ready to go at the start of pre-season.

The 25-year-old, who only recently returned from a lengthy spell out due to injury, fell awkwardly in the final moments of the game and was in significant pain before being helped from the field.

“Obviously, it was a massive disappointment for Kane to go over on his shoulder,” manager Paul Cook said at his morning press conference.

“It was the last kick of the game and his shoulder did pop out. Obviously, we’re having it scanned and analysed, and I think they’re just making decisions now as to the best outcome for him.

“I think it could possibly result in an operation as early as possible and that could see him probably out for four to six weeks, I think it is.

“But he’d then return to pre-season totally fit and ready to go so, whilst it is disappointing, I’m sure in terms of where Kane’s been, he’s been a massive plus for us in the last four games and a real shining light in relation to the future.”

Vincent-Young's absence for the final game of the season at home to Fleetwood on Sunday could see skipper Luke Chambers return to the side for what may be his final match for the club with his contract up this summer.

Poor lad. Showed glimpses of what we'd been missing in the few games he managed.

Get well soon Kane!

Agreed. At least it wasn't a recurrence of the old injury so looks like he should be fine for next season and the new order. Good luck for the op KVY!

Got to feel for him but it's not the worst time to pick up a minor injury. Getting him fully fit and keeping him fit is going to be crucial for us next season. Hopefully we can add a player similar to him for the left side in the summer as well.

Maybe one of our best, but time to offload. We have too many injury prone players.

The worry is ,especially for those of us who remember A Mathie, that dislocated shoulders can prove a real niggle and difficult for the player to fully overcome .We must hope KVY fares better , returns to the best and robust physical health for its key as a defender .
Very best wishes and good luck !

We can rebuild him. We have the technology. We can make him better than he was. Better, stronger, faster...
...but we don't want to spend a lot of money

foot_kick_ball_goal - agreed, although you do may him sound like Robocop

Marcus, I think you need to roll back another 14 years from Robocop and see what 6 million dollars, well spent, did for a certain Steve Austin in 1973. You need to be of a certain age...

Poor lad, but if you had said he would have played the games he has in past weeks and then got injured we would not have been surprised. The good news is this is no muscle injury re-occurrence and there is now no reason KVY cannot hit the ground running in pre-season.....that has been my only major hope for him for the past month watching him play through my fingers !
