Ipswich Town midfielder Luke Hyam has suffered an setback in his recovery from a problematic knee injury.

The 24-year-old has been out since August and will now face another two months on the sidelines after undergoing surgery.

Hyam was expected to be back in action imminently but suffered a reaction.

"Unfortunately the symptoms returned again and having seen a specialist, surgery was recommended this time," physio Matt Byard said.

"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.”

In more positive news, striker David McGoldrick has returned to training following his ankle injury and defender Adam Webster is also fit again.


Ipswich Town duo confident ahead of Leeds United test

Ipswich Town players Freddie Sears and Jonas Knudsen say they're looking forward to an away trip to Leeds United tomorrow - but are determined to leave with a win.

Leeds have improved in recent weeks and have won their last three games in all competitions.

Ipswich's form has been more patchy in comparison, but Sears believes they are playing well enough to pick up all three points at Elland Road.

"It's going to be a tough game going away from home at Leeds," he told ITV News Anglia.

"But we've got three more games coming up until the international break and we're looking forward to it."
