Midfielder Hyam closing in on a return to action following injury lay-off and wants his place back in the side

Luke Hyam is fighting his way back from injury and is ready to earn back his place in the starting line up, following the nasty cut he picked up against Millwall last month.

The 22-year-old is on the road to full fitness and is ready to battle Jay Tabb, Stephen Hunt- who have both performed well in he middle in Hyam’s absence- and new singing Paul Green, for a place in the starting line-up.

“They won’t want to lose their places in the team and it will be up to me to show the manager what I can do in training to try and earn my place back in the side,” Luke told Saturday’s match day programme.

The 22-year-old was a regular in the central midfield role and was beginning to make the position his own before the injury set-back and admits that he was frustrated at the timing of the injury.

“It was a shame to get the injury when I did as I was playing regularly and there’s never a good time to pick up a bad knock,” added Luke. 

However the midfielder was touched by the well wishes and messages he has received from fans, and knows that the Blue Army fans are behind him.

“The Club put a picture of my leg injury up on the official Twitter account and I started receiving a lot of nice messages, wishing me a speedy recovery and things like that,” added the Ipswich-born man.

“It was pleasing to see so many fans supporting me and it’s nice to have the backing of the fans.”
