After sustaining a horrific injury against Charlton Athletic, Jack Iredale might need to wear a protective headband when playing against his previous team, Cambridge United.

Chuks Aneke’s errant elbow caught the Wanderers defender, severely tearing his ear and need multiple stitches and medical attention.

Despite the injury, Iredale continued to play on Saturday and made a swift comeback to the practice field to ensure he would be in the lineup for Tuesday’s match at Abbey Stadium.

He went off in the middle of the second half for some reason, and I’m not sure how, but I believe the boy Aneke caught him with a really hard elbow, splitting his ear in two.

He needed to see a surgeon because the condition was serious enough. Jack deserves a lot of credit for his bravery, fortitude, and perseverance for the rest of the game.

And his Australian mullet did not cover that portion of his ear.

He might require some sort of Terry Butcher-style strapping to manage it, but he’s a courageous young man who wants to go on.

Monday morning saw Ricardo Santos work out once more, and he could be included in the team for Saturday’s match against Blackpool. Dion Charles is expected to make his comeback on Tuesday when Wanderers visit DW Stadium to play Wigan Athletic.

Following a hamstring injury, Randell Williams will also resume training the following week.

The cast on goalie Nathan Baxter’s broken wrist is scheduled to be taken off next week, which will help the medical team determine when he will be able to return.

After a post-kick-off deluge, Wanderers played just nine minutes of football on their most recent trip to Cambridge. Since then, they have won one, drawn two, and played a third.
