Primus suffers injury setback

Primus suffers injury setback

Linvoy Primus looked on course to start his latest battle to win himself a starting place in the Pompey side any time, but now physio Gary Saddler has revealed to The News that he has suffered an injury setback.

He is getting through reserve games okay, but the trouble is coming after the matches: 'It's a real setback, Linvoy was doing so well.

'While he is playing there is no discomfort, that's not the problem - it's just afterwards that he's been feeling it.

'He explains it as feeling edgy and not normal and says he cannot get any power in his left leg.

'It's actually a different area of the knee so it's not the old problem, fortunately that seems to have been corrected.

'It would actually have been more of a setback if the old injury had recurred.'

So the saving grace is that it is not the original injury - which was corrected by surgery over the summer - but a new one is a worry.

He is now going to see another specialist to try and get to the root of the problem, but the early thoughts are that it could only be a couple of weeks setback, so with it being the international break anyway this means he will hopefully not lose too much ground and will still - all being well - be able to feature in the league cup match at the end of the month?

This setback could make people think that his chances of getting back in are even slimmer, but if anything my thinking is this will make Primus even more determined.

Gutted for him but no point rushing back until he is 110% fighting fit. The saving grace is we are not that desperate to have him back which could have resulted in Linvoy coming back too early & making it worse, like they do at Newcastle & West Ham.

Linvoy can take his time and ensure that he is ready to come back when he is good and ready. He will be needed in January when the African lads go away, so take your time Optimus, write another book, but do not rush back, and he is a LEGEND.

Keep him fresh till later in the season! You always get 100% from Linvoy when he's around! Isnt this what happened last year, couldnt get a game then, once he got his chance was awesome!!

Yes and he never lets us down does he, didnt we celebrate when he got his goals against West Ham, as we could see the pleasure he got from scoring them. Look forward to seeing him playing in the first team again, but dont rush back Optimus.

if this had happened last season, we would be in trouble, but fear not, distin is having a fangtastic time, whilst we can always call upon paramot, cranie and even play herman centre back and move taylor to left back. i feel sorry for him, but he is doing ok, just brought out a new book by the way fellas, its got loads about pompey but also about his faith and religion, anyone got it?

On this day in history...27th May

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 27th May.

Chesterfield's O'Shea targeted

Although so far Pompey have had two bids turned down for Chesterfield's O'Shea. Will, assuming another bid (as it's expected) is made, it be third time luck for the Blues?

It wasn't Real Madrid but Bristol City isn't bad!

Contrary to what I just wrote (muppet that I am) this isn't at Fratton this is at Ashton Gate with Pompey heading to Bristol City on Saturday 30th July, with a 3pm kick-off.

Liverpool goalie keen on Pompey return

Will he get this chance though? I think we could quite safely say he'll not be in the Liverpool 1st team next season and Pompey want a goalie so could this be Ryan Fulton...
