Davis: "Blow To Lose Kiwomya"

20 September 2016

Steve Davis says it is bad timing to lose his leading scorer.

Steve Davis has told the club’s official web-site that it is a severe blow to lose winger Alex Kiwomya through injury but he says his absence will only open the door for one of the club’s younger players. Kiwomya dislocated his shoulder in Crewe’s 2-0 win over Grimsby Town on Saturday and the 20-year-old has now returned to Chelsea to be further assessed.

The former England Youth International will under a MRI scan tomorrow to reveal the extent of the damage following his late, heavy fall on his shoulder at the weekend.

Steve told “Alex has returned to Chelsea to be assessed. He will have a scan to reveal the extent of the damage because his shoulder has been put back in and they will want to see if there has been any ligament damage attached.

“Once he has undergone that, there will be a conversation with their medical department to determine a plan for his rehab. If that is here with us or down there with them, will be a discussion we will all have.

“Injuries happen in football and it is rare you can go through your career without one. It is a blow to lose him because he has arguably been our best player, consistent wise, and for the impact he has made.

“We don’t have another like him, with his pace and his willingness to go at the opposition, but we do have three players who can come in and play the role a bit differently to what Alex can offer us.”
