Loan midfielder Lewis Simper should be back in training with Yeovil Town next week, according to Cambridge United first team coach Mark Bonner.

The Us’ boss confirmed the midfielder, who signed on a season-long loan in July, has picked up an injury after being one of a number of Glovers’ players who suffered COVID-19.

Speaking after his side’s EFL Trophy win over Tottenham Hotspur Under-21s on Tuesday night, Bonner said: “(Lewis) had COVID and he was off for a while with that, then he came back from COVID and picked up an injury which is quite common at the moment with people working too hard after 10 days of nothing.

“He had a small problem with knee so he is back in with us at the moment for treatment and rehab, so he trained on Monday and Tuesday and will train Thursday and Friday and be back with Yeovil next week.

“Hopefully he will be back in their squad for the following week.

A big thankyou to Alex Jones of Prost International for asking the question on our behalf.
