Sam Vokes picked up a Player of the Year double recently being the overall winner at the supporters` clubs` event before collecting the main prize at the club`s official presentation. He just pipped Danny Ings who had to be content with the players` player of the year award.
Vokes scored 21 goals this season including 20 goals in the Championship helping the club ultimately achieve promotion to the top flight before being cruelly injured in the home game against League Leaders, Leicester at the end of March and missing the rest of the season with an anterior cruciate ligament injury. Vokes subsequently had successful surgery to fix the problem but the Welsh international is still not expected to feature until the second half of next season.
It has now also been revealed though that he faces further surgery, this time to fix a dislocated shoulder. Vokes suffered the injury in the away game with Millwall. He was one of the goalscorers in that game which finished 2-2 but Physio Ally Beattie had to quickly push the shoulder back in its socket in order to allow Vokes to carry on.
He has lived with the problem ever since but it has not been that troublesome. Nevertheless, the opportunity is now being taken to undergo another operation to repair minor tissue damage. The surgery will take place once Vokes is able to walk around without the aid of crutches. The procedure is likely to take place in the next two weeks or so. It could take six to eight-week to recover but that will coincide with his rehabilitation from knee surgery in any case so there is no major concern. He will now have the summer months to rest and recuperate.
