Reaction prompts operation for midfielder but there is good news for Didz and Webbo

David McGoldrick and Adam Webster have given Town a boost but Luke Hyam is expected to be out for at least another two months after having surgery.

Town midfielder Luke has not played this season after sustaining a knee injury in a pre-season friendly at Cambridge. 

An operation looked likely initially but Luke made good progress in the lead up to the international break that surgery was put on hold but the Academy graduate had a reaction as he stepped up his recovery.

“Luke took a blow to the outside of his knee at Cambridge and there was damage to a nerve,” Town physio Matt Byard explained to the Club website. 

“There was a loss of sensation and muscle control. We hoped it would settle down but just as we started to discuss surgery, Luke improved greatly and we were told he wouldn’t need an operation. 

“Unfortunately the symptoms returned again and having seen a specialist, surgery was recommended this time. Luke’s had the operation and we hope that will sort the problem. 

“It’s going to be another eight weeks or so before we would expect to see him close to being back on the training field.”

There is much better news for Didz and Adam though. Didz has been out since August after rupturing ankle ligaments but is making good progress and returned to training for the first time today. 

Webbo missed the games against Brighton and Huddersfield after being forced off with a hamstring injury in the defeat at Leeds but trained this morning and is expected to be available for the weekend trip to Blackburn.
