Ipswich Town’s Dominic Ball has vowed to ‘come back stronger’ after being ruled out for the rest of the season with a serious knee injury.

The midfielder has featured in eight league games so far to help Tractor Boys take second place in the table, but his involvement in the campaign ended after it was revealed he suffered a breakup meniscus in the 4-4 draw with Charlton.
Although he played in the FA Cup game against Bracknell a few days later, the extent of the injury has now been confirmed. So obviously it’s a blow to Ball and he went on twitter to send a message to support after the failure.
“After having a CT scan I am absolutely disgusted to report that I have ruptured my meniscus. I’m going to have surgery and face a long time away from the pitch.
“It’s not something I’ve faced before, but a challenge I know how to overcome and come back stronger. I’m disgusted that I’m unlikely to play against this season, but I’ll do my best to get back there to help the team. Thank you all for your support and kind messages..”
Do Norwich City and Ipswich Town have these 12 things in common?
First of all, it must be said that it is a real blow for Ball because he had managed to play more in recent weeks and his absence will be felt on Kieran McKenna.
But, these things happen in the game and as Ball says with his update here, it’s just about bouncing back and doing everything right in terms of recovery.
In the meantime, McKenna will feel he has enough to cope with, but it could impact the club’s plans for the January transfer window.
