And there is a letter from up the road that is welcomed as well

Cole Skuse has thanked the medics for their part in getting him back on the training pitch so soon after he was carried off against Norwich - despite him swearing at them!

The Town midfielder was stretched off after lengthy treatment following a clash of heads just before half-time in the derby draw and has also paid tribute to the Blue Army - and the Canaries.

“I was out for the count for 90 seconds, two minutes but in terms of memory loss, there has not been a problem. I can remember it all,” Cole told the Club website.

“I’d like to thank everyone for the help on the day. At the time, I said a few foul words to the ambulance team out of probably being a bit giddy; there was frustration there as well because they were strapping me in from top to bottom - which I didn’t think was necessary.

“They explained to me that it was as a precaution and they had to do it. Everything was done in the right manner. All the checks were done and that is why I was allowed to return  to training pretty quickly.

“As I was going off I could clearly hear the chants from the fans and the ovation I got from all areas, not just our fans, meant a lot to me.  

“I also received a letter in the post from Norwich City Football Club saying ‘all rivalries aside, we want to wish you a speedy recovery’. I thought that was a classy touch.”
