Kilmarnock have provided an update on Arsenal loanee Zech Medley after he was substituted with a head injury during Saturday’s Scottish Cup win over Stenhousemuir.
Tommy Wright’s side scored four for the second game on the spin as a Kyle Lafferty hat-trick inspired them to a 4-0 victory. But there was concern for Arsenal talent Medley at full-time, who was taken off during the game with a swollen cheekbone.
The defender has been a regular for Kilmarnock since arriving at Rugby Park in the winter window from Arsenal. He has featured eight times in the Scottish Premiership, scoring his first senior goal against Dundee United in February.
Killie sit 11th in the league as they fight for league survival and a club statement indicates the Arsenal loanee will be ok for the run-in: “The club has received positive news following the injury suffered by Zech Medley during Saturday’s Scottish Cup tie with Stenhousemuir
“Zech had a facial injury and suspected concussion and was removed from play in the 30th minute under the new Concussion Substitute rule. He has been assessed by a specialist and has facial bone bruising. Thankfully after a further assessment concussion has been ruled out.
“Zech will return to training and should be in contention for Saturday’s match against Ross County.”
