Young left-back Jernade Meade caught the eye this season. Not just because his football shorts look gigantic on him, but because of his all-energy appearances in the first team.
The youngster made an impressive cameo in the remarkable 7-5 win over Reading in the Capital One Cup, before making his full debut away at Olympiacos in the Champions League.
But his progress was halted by a training ground injury, as he explained to ‘Luton on Sunday’ (funnily enough, on a Friday).
“My right foot just went,” he said. “I heard a pop and thought I had broken it. I went for an X-ray and it wasn’t broken, which was good. But the MRI showed I had snapped a ligament and sometimes a break can be better than ligament damage as they take ages to heal.
“I recovered well the first few days but now it’s at a standstill. I used to be quite injury prone, especially in my first year. This is my first one big one in a while.
“I reckon I’ll be back for three for four weeks. It’s come at the wrong time as I was hoping to go out on loan or train with the first team.”
With loans open to lower league clubs even after the January window closes, let’s hope he can get himself fit and play some first team football.8,605 views
