Boss sees the quality in Teddy and welcomes Danny back as well
Paul Hurst says he has already seen enough of Teddy Bishop to know he can make a big impact for Town this season.
The Academy graduate has been hindered by injury over the past three years but returned to action as a second-half substitute in the Carabao Cup clash at Exeter in midweek.
It was Teddy’s first run-out since sustaining a ruptured hamstring against QPR in December.
“It was great to see Danny Rowe and Teddy Bishop out there on Tuesday night after their injuries,” writes the Town boss in his column in Saturday's matchday programme..
“They still have a way to go to get to the forefront of my mind for selection but they are heading in the right direction.
“They have taken big steps forward in training and getting some game time. Now they just need to build up their fitness levels to get themselves in the best physical condition to compete for a place in the team.
“They both got a good reception from the fans, particularly Bish, who has obviously come through the ranks here.
“I have seen enough in training already to see that he has real ability and can contribute this season. Everyone I have spoken to here as well tells me the same - he can be a real player for us.”
