Drury can now look forward

The 30-year-old made just 14 appearances this season as the Canaries were relegated from the Championship, but manager Bryan Gunn is hoping the surgery can finally end his injury nightmare. Drury suffered knee ligament damage in October 2007. "Adam Drury is away to have a minor operation on his knee to tidy that up and make sure he's right for the beginning of the season," Gunn told the Evening News. "It's been very frustrating for Adam. "He has shown great spirit and determination in coming back from a very bad injury. What went against Adam was the fact that we didn't have any structure of games for him to build up some fitness. "At the start of the season he was travelling in the squads, maybe sitting on the bench or in the stand, so he wasn't building up any real fitness. The lack of games hasn't helped him and then, when there was an opportunity for him to come in, it was very difficult for him to maintain the Saturday-Tuesday-Saturday fixture programme we had. "I hope with this final tidy-up of the problem, he will be able to work during the summer, build his fitness up in pre-season training and games and be available for selection on August 8."
