Ipswich left-back Damien Delaney has refused to set a target for his return from a serious injury.The 29-year-old has undergone two operations within the last seven days to remove a blood clot in his leg after a collision in training. [LNB]He told the club's website: "There's no real guide to follow when it comes to the recovery. [LNB]"I don't want to set a timeline but I want to get back as soon as possible and I'm optimistic I can do that." [LNB]The Irishman suffered the injury while training with his team-mates in Holland last week but thought he only had a dead leg. [LNB]The extent of the problem was diagnosed quickly and now the defender is on the road to recovery. [LNB]"There's no fitness work I can do. I've got to get my strength back first and go from there," he said. [LNB]"The surgeon assured me that as they had operated within a few hours of the problem, there should be nothing to worry about in relation to a reaction."
