Physio Bobby Bacic has confirmed that Scott Malone has not suffer any ligament damage.

The left back left the field of play in the game against Burnley after only seven minutes and was replaced by Shane Lowry who unfortunately went on to score and own goal, but he Malone has now undergone initial tests on the injury to determine the extent of it, and everybody is pleased wit the results.

Whilst there is still no time frame for his return to action, it will certainly now be sooner rather than later for the 22 year old given he hasn’t damaged any ligaments, so hopefully it will only be weeks now and not months.

Speaking to the official site our physio explained that initial scans had indicated that Scott had neither suffered knee ligament damage nor cartilage damage which was very pleasing indeed.

‘Due to the early stage of the injury it would be premature to give a predicted return to play, especially as we want to double check the ankle as well. We are, however, pleased with the results so far.’

At least early doors that will be a weight off for Steve Lomas as he looked to the future, as unless something really complicates things with his ankle now, we may just be looking at bruising or a slight strain of some kind, which everyone would accept given it could’ve been far far worse.
