Only a matter of days ago, here at Vital Luton Town, we ran an article in praise of our former defender James Justin.
The article – one-of-our-own-destined-for-the-top – covered how Justin had grasped his opportunity, to perform at Premier League level, with both hands and was edging towards possible international selection.
Sadly, Justin’s career has been put on temporary hold after the 22-year-old suffered a serious knee injury during the midweek FA Cup tie against Brighton.
It is expected that the injury will be serious enough to prevent the defender from appearing for Leicester City for the remainder of the season.
However, for further realisation of just how good Justin is doing, since moving to Leicester City, look no further than the words of praise, appearing on The BBC, from his manager Brendan Rodgers:
“The scan hasn’t shown up so well, it’s a massive blow for us.
“He’s been incredible for us, played in so many positions and been a minimum eight out of 10 in all of them.
“He’s tough mentally and physically, that’s what makes him the boy he is.
“It will make him stronger. He was upset yesterday because he’s been so robust, he’s played nearly every game.”
I am sure you will join me in wishing James Justin a speedy recovery and we hope to see him back in action as soon as possible.
Luton Town v Cardiff?
Luton Town to Win!
Cardiff City to Win!
