Defender out of Wolves clash on Boxing Day after he suffered concussion
Adam Dugdale will not feature against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Boxing Day after being knocked unconscious against Shrewsbury on Saturday. The defender suffered the horrific injury in the opening minutes of our 1-1 draw with the Shrews and although the defender has returned to training today and is in good spirits, the club will be sending him for a brain scan to check him over.
After a five minute delay on the pitch, the centre-half was stretched off and replaced by Mark Ellis.
Steve Davis told the club’s official web-site: “On medical advice Adam won’t play at Wolves. He will be out for the recommended five days and there won’t be any contact or heading the ball.
“Adam will visit the doctor and have a brain scan just make sure everything is okay. I’m sure he will he be.
“Byron was okay. He took a blow to the back of the head after colliding with the advertising hoarding but he wasn’t concussed and just had some bruising, so he will be fine. He will be fit and has been able to train today.
“It is just one of those unfortunate things that seems to be happening to us at the moment. We lose a player after two minutes and then Byron is forced off just as he was beginning to get at the full-back and make things happen.”
