After a clash of heads in Kilmarnock’s game against Stenhousemuir at the weekend, Zech Medley suffered a potential head injury. He was withdrawn from action and his manager said afterwards there was a suspected concussion and a possible cheekbone injury.

Fortunately, the test results have all returned positive news. Whilst Medley does have some facial bone bruising, it’s nothing more serious than that, and concussion has been ruled out by further assessments.

Kilmarnock state that Medley is now free to return to training, and he should be in contention for their next match against Ross County this weekend.

The Scottish Premiership team have put together a rare couple of wins with Medley in the starting lineup lately, and the fans seem to be pleased with how he’s doing at the moment.

The team have dragged themselves off the bottom of the table, and they’re into the last-16 of the cup, so there’s still hope for a positive end to the season. It’s certainly good news for both Medley and Kilmarnock that he should be available again immediately.
