Ipswich Town have confirmed via their official website that midfielder Teddy Bishop will miss the rest of the season with a ruptured hamstring.
The 21-year-old limped out of the Boxing Day draw with Queens Park Rangers, and will now be ruled out until the summer.
The news will come as a huge blow to Mick McCarthy’s side, who lie just five points from the playoff spots following an excellent start to the season.
An academy graduate after joining the Portman Road set-up as an 8-year-old, Bishop has a bright future at the club, but has failed to make his mark on first-team affairs this semester.
Just one start and three appearances all season has frustrated the player, who will be devastated to have picked up his injury just as a run in the side seemed possible.
Bishop is a popular figure at Portman Road having graduated from the club’s academy, and fans will be disappointed to see the player’s progress halted by injury.
Bishop has been on the fringes of the starting line-up all season, and appeared extremely close to enjoying an extended run in McCarthy’s side.
Now the player will go into recuperation mode, and will hope that months of hard work in the gym will prepare him to come back stronger next season.
The player can now just hope his teammates do enough to ensure he returns a Premier League player.
Ipswich fans, do you think Bishop has a bright future at Portman Road or is he not good enough? Have your say below…
