Andre Dozzell is continuing his recovery from a serious knee injury with an intensive two-week rehabilitation stint at Cambridge University.

A post shared by Alex Chapman (@alexthephysio) on

Following a stellar summer in which he helped England Under 19s to European Championship glory in Georgia, Dozzell was named in the starting line-up for the Blues’ opening-day clash with Birmingham but suffered a nasty ACL injury to his right knee 50 minutes into the contest.

It is likely to keep him out of the season, with the teenager undergoing surgery in London in August to reconstruct his knee.

But his rehabilitation programme is well underway, with Town’s first team physiotherapist, Alex Chapman, posting regular updates on social media.

The latest comes at 13 weeks as Dozzell is undertaking an intense two-week stint in Cambridge, where the midfielder has been working on loading his knee as well as stability.

Chapman’s video shows Dozzell using a series of weight exercises to strengthen his knee, indluding squats, Romanian deadlifts, weighted lunges and the Jacobs Ladder climbing machine.

While Dozzell is likely to miss the rest of the season, his absence, as well as injuries to the likes of Emyr Huws, Teddy Bishop, Luke Hyam and Tom Adeyemi, has opened the door to two of his young Blues team-mates.

Flynn Downes and Tristan Nydam have now made 24 first team appearances between them, with both players breaking into the England Under 18 set-up.

Episode One: Stuart Watson and Andy Warren discuss Ipswich Town’s draw at Hull City, hear from Mick McCarthy and Jordan Spence and make the first pitches for football’s Room 101.

Jordan Spence has been telling his Ipswich Town team-mates just how much of a threat he is in front of goal - and the defender is delighted to be proving his point on the field.

Suffolk FA Women’s Cup Second Round

Ipswich Athletic 0

Ipswich Town Ladies Development side 14

Ipswich Town Ladies Development side progressed to the next round of the Suffolk FA Cup with a massive 14-0 thumping of Suffolk league side Ipswich Athletic, writes Liam Young.

Focus on the strengths, recognise the weaknesses and enjoy the ride.

“We might not be the best, but we keep going. It’s an endearing quality we have.”

Watch match highlights of Ipswich Town’s 2-2 draw at Hull City on Saturday.

A point at Hull City should not be seen as anything other than a good result ordinarily and the fact that we gained that point with a late equaliser certainly felt better than a loss. But were they not there for the taking on the day?

It was certainly an eventful day for David McGoldrick.

Jordan Spence believes his late leveller at Hull shows the character of the Ipswich Town squad.
