Vincent-Young Hoping to Return Against Blackpool
Thursday, 14th Nov 2019 14:06
Right-back Kane Vincent-Young says he’s hopeful he'll be fit enough to return to action when the Blues take on Blackpool in their next League One game at Portman Road a week on Saturday.
The 23-year-old, who joined Town for £500,000 from Colchester in August, underwent surgery on his groin in Doha, Qatar a fortnight ago.
“The groin was bothering me so the medical team said surgery was the best way forward,” he told the club site.
“Everything is going well now and hopefully I’ll be back fit and ready for the Blackpool game.”
The Londoner initially felt the injury at Fleetwood when he was forced off at half-time and missed the following League One match at Accrington.
Having returned to action in the home defeat to Rotherham, he suffered a recurrence in the win at Southend when he was subbed in the second half and missed the trip to Rochdale.
Speaking about Vincent-Young after the 1-0 Leasing.com Trophy defeat to his old club on Tuesday, manager Paul Lambert said: “He’s doing really well, Kane at the moment. We’ll see how he progresses through the next week or so.
“Lads will play in the FA Cup, then we’ve got the Blackpool game and the Wycombe game, so we’ve got loads of games. When you carry one or two knocks, it’s impossible to rest them.”

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.

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.
