Club Physio Bobby Bacic has given an injury update following our three sessions a day training camp in Portugal now being well underway.

Speaking to the official site Bacic talked about how training had been going and also gave an update on the three lads who stayed behind at the training ground to continue their own recoveries from injury.

‘The players are half way through their training camp in Portugal and are currently doing three sessions a day. The first session starts on the pitches at 8am for running drills. They then have their next session at 10.30am. This is taken by the coaches and is the football session, which wraps up before lunch and the sun reaching its peak.’

He goes on to explain that the third and final session of the day is gym or pool based at 5pm, and in the periods in between the club have organised compulsary supervised stretching sessions and ice baths.

‘So far everyone is finding it hard work but enjoyable as the facilities are first class.’

As for the three players who didn’t travel with the group though, they are Carlos Edwards, Paris Cowan-Hall and Jamie Philpot who have all remained at home for further treatment and rehabilitation.

‘The planning with Carlos is to have his first match after four weeks of full training so he has trained with the youth team. Paris has picked up a small calf strain on the last day of running at the training ground, so the decision was made to leave him behind.’

Bacic explains that with Cowan-Hall’s previous issues all being collision and contact related from both games and training, this issue is purely a running related one so it’s not linked and shouldn’t give rise to any major concerns.

‘He will be doing extra conditioning and strength work over the next few weeks before he rejoins the main group. Finally Jamie is progressing well after his knee operation and has already joined in a few training sessions with the youth team. He will look to join the main group on our return next week.’

So at least so far almost a fully fit group at this stage, and hopefully, although Edwards will need close monitoring ahead of us decided whether to offer a new deal, the other two lads should be back pretty sharpish in any event.
