INJURY UPDATE: Kelvin Langmead

4 months ago By OL 2

Club captain Kelvin Langmead spoke to about his recovery from injury.

The central defender began by explaining the nature of his injury.

"I felt a bit of discomfort in my heel towards the start of pre season. I trained for the first week and it just never really went away, nagging me."

"Then I rested it, I hoped that would be enough but it wasn't. I've come back it's still sore and after thinking it was tendentious, I've had some rehab and got back jogging."

"But then it flared back up, so I ended up going for an ultrasound scan which revealed a small tear"

This has led to a lengthy layoff but the defender is looking ahead positively.

"I had an injection and my foot was put in the boot."

"It will be six weeks on Monday, when the boot comes off, so my calf is somewhat smaller than before, so I have got a lot of work to do with that."

Keen to return to first team action, the experienced professional understands that patience is key.

"It's more getting that strength back up, getting that conditioned, before I can even consider jogging or getting back outside. It's a delicate process, I can't do too much, but I need to do enough."

Despite his spell on the sidelines new manager Dino Maamria is tracking Langmead's progress.

"He [Dino Maamria] has spoken to me about my injury and where I stand, how can we help speed it up, help it progress, so we've talked about that."

"All managers come in with their own ideas, their own plans and I have no doubt he'll be looking to implement that over the next few weeks."

Where next?

Nuneaton Town 0-1 Spennymoor Town Nuneaton town suffered defeat at the hands of spennymoor town in Dino Maamria’s first home game in charge as manager.
