Norwood to Undergo Operation
Saturday, 5th Oct 2019 18:07
Town boss Paul Lambert says striker James Norwood will undergo a minor operation on his groin but expects him to be fit for the Blues’ next League One game at Accrington in a fortnight.
Norwood, who was subbed in the 71st minute during today’s 1-0 win at Fleetwood due to the injury, has been suffering with the problem since he was with Tranmere and has been nursed through the last few games.
“James will need a little operation I think, which hopefully [won’t keep him out for] too long.” Lambert said.
“He needs it done. If we could get him through the game last week and this game then it was always the plan to get a little nick and hopefully he’ll be fit for Accrington.
“It’s only a small thing but it’s been enough to hinder the lad. Once he gets that done I’m sure he’ll be right as rain.”
He added: “It’s just a wee nerve thing in the groin that he needs to get sorted. When that’s healed he will be OK.”
Kane Vincent-Young was subbed at half-time against the Cod Army as a precaution, also due to a groin problem.
“Kane [came off] for a little groin injury so we couldn’t take the risk with him, the break has come at the right time," Lambert said. "One or two lads have been carrying a little bit.”

How many of us who were fortunate enough to have followed ITFC back in 1980 realised at the time that we were indeed blessed to be around to witness the greatest ever Ipswich Town side?
Round Three: Eagle by Kropotkin123
Par was set at five points from one win and two draws. We managed to get a haul of seven points, which means we were two under par. Google promises me that this is an eagle.
Stick With It by Moggasknockdown
Last season, following our most recent derby day disappointment, a late Monday afternoon discussion in the office had prompted a colleague to wonder what he might say to Marcus Evans if he were stuck in a lift with him.
The Beat One Year On by ElephantintheRoom
Kevin Beattie died in September last year. He is by some distance the most popular player in the club’s history. Any poll on Town’s greatest player will be won at a canter by Beattie. He’s destined to be the first player to have a statue in his honour (if the somewhat radical design doesn’t make it look like he’s slipped off his pedestal).
