Roberts to Bounce Back

Injury update as Roberts hits comeback trail

There was good news for the U’s today with striker James Roberts’ injury seemingly not as serious as first feared.

The 18-year-old forward, who scored three times in his first two senior games, pulled up holding his hamstring during the second half of Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Wimbledon and was immediately helped off the pitch. However having let the injury settle down and after a couple of days of treatment it is hoped that James will be available again in around three to four weeks.

“It is already a lot better” he told us. “It was painful when it happened but we did the right thing; I got off the pitch immediately, got ice on it and Andrew Proctor the physio has been great.

“It’s the first time I’ve had anything like this but I am not going to start setting targets or trying to rush back. Even a couple of days later there has been progress so I will just listen to the advice, do what I need to do, and hopefully be back playing sooner rather than later.”
