Ipswich Town midfielder Andre Dozzell has paid tribute to the club’s medical staff as he continues his recovery from a knee ligament injury.
The England Under 19 star was stretchered off in the opening-day victory over Birmingham and later required surgery after suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury.
He is set to miss the entire season, but Dozzell is making strides in his recovery and has thanked physios Matt Byard and Alex Chapman for their help.
“The physios [Matt Byard and Alex Chapman] have been unbelievable. I have to thank them for all the time and effort they’ve given me,” Dozzell told the club website.
“They set me goals and know exactly what I should be doing to prevent any injuries during rehab.

Speaking before the weekend game with Reading, manager Mick McCarthy said: “May or June, that’s when he’s going to be back. But I’ve just seen him, he tells me he’s had a scan today and he’s recovering particularly well, he’s pleased with his rehab and recovery.
“But until he actually puts his boots on in May that’s when we’ll find out how good it’s been. But everything’s been a success, the op, and he’s recovering, it’s fine.”
