Fraser raring to get back into action after injury return
Winger Ryan Fraser is eager to get back on the field following his return from injury.
The Scot hasn’t played for the Blues since suffering a knee injury while training with Scotland Under 21s in October, but was back in the matchday squad at MK Dons having returned from parent club Bournemouth just days earlier.
Fraser didn’t make it off the bench at stadium:mk or at Fulham on Tuesday night, but is keen to get back into the thick of the action when Derby come to town this weekend.
“It’s good to be back and everyone has helped me settle back, even though I’ve had a lot of stick from the lads!” The Bournemouth loanee told the club’s official website.
“That’s to be expected though and it’s great to be back with the boys and out on the training field.

“I’ve obviously been out for two months or so and the lack of football was getting to me. It was a shame the injury came when it did as I was really enjoying my football at Ipswich but it happens.
“It could have been worse as I thought at first I might have been out for around nine months, rather than nine weeks or so.

“But I’ve been training at Bournemouth for a good two weeks now and I’m itching to get playing again, although the lads have been doing great these last two games.
“I was ready to come on against Fulham but then they brought on big Matt Smith so I think the gaffer thought it would be better for six foot Piotr [Malarcyzk] to go and mark him rather than me!
“But I’m ready to go if called upon by the gaffer and it will be good to get back at Portman Road for the first time in while this weekend and show my appreciation to the Ipswich fans.”
