Nolan Glad to Be Over Nightmare Injury
Monday, 2nd Sep 2019 16:58
Midfielder Jon Nolan is glad to be finally over the calf injury which saw him miss pre-season and the opening weeks of the campaign.
The 27-year-old returned as a 73rd-minute sub against his previous club Shrewsbury on Saturday and is expected to start tomorrow night’s Leasing.com Trophy game against Tottenham’s U21s at Portman Road.
“It’s been the longest few months of my life but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel now,” said in an interview in Saturday’s match programme.
“It all stems from the injury I had last year, a calf problem on the left side.
"I knew it wasn’t right over the summer so I had a scan in Liverpool and that showed that I should have rested it over the last few weeks of last season.
“It was a ‘six-week injury’ so my season should have finished early but I tried to train on it.
"That meant I couldn’t do any work in the summer and then when I did start coming back, my right one went.
"It’s been an absolute nightmare but hopefully I’m over it now and can push on.”

Wing Wonders (Part Two) by ElephantintheRoom
As the sixties morphed into the seventies, wing wonders at Portman Road were a bit like London buses. Four had come along at once, though in truth one or two (like those same London buses) were also easy to miss.
2019/20 - Grating Expectations by tractorboykent
A lot of comments at the moment would suggest that we are in the midst of a(nother) crisis. Whilst the league table doesn’t reflect that, the perception is likely more based on our own expectations of where we’d be at this stage.
Wing Wonders (Part One) by ElephantintheRoom
It’s a curiosity of Town’s great years that the two big successes – winning the league under Alf Ramsey and the UEFA Cup under Bobby Robson were based on teams without true wingers.
John Cobbold’s Ace Gardener by ElephantintheRoom
For newer Town supporters perhaps, the name Colin Viljoen has disappeared into the mists of time. But for those of us who started supporting Town in the 60s his name is fondly recalled as a true great. His highlights reel alone (alas it exists only in memory) would mark him out as someone special.
Big Al by ElephantintheRoom
When the Kevin Beattie statue is revealed, I suspect it will be his great pal and fellow central defensive titan, Allan Hunter, who will do the revealing. What will be going through Big Al’s mind I wonder? Sadness at his friend’s passing – but mixed with fierce pride perhaps.
