Mansfield Town defender Farrend Rawson is now ‘feeling better’ after the 24-year-old was concussed in Saturday’s Sky Bet League Two match at Salford City, Stags’ head physio Thomas Whittamore has said.
Farrend suffered concussion after accidentally colliding with goalkeeper Jamie Pardington in the second half of the match.
He was then taken to Salford Royal Hospital before being discharged later that evening.
Head physiotherapist Thomas Whittamore said: “Faz was knocked unconscious following a collision with the goalkeeper and removed from the field of play on a stretcher after being knocked out. He was then taken to hospital as a precaution and reviewed by doctors.
“Our thanks are extended to Salford Royal Hospital and Salford City Football Club, in particular Dr. Mubin and his team for their help and assistance in managing Faz on the pitch.”
Thomas added: “I spoke to Faz today (Monday). He has a bit of a headache and is feeling sore, as you’d expect, but is feeling better and improving day by day.
“He will follow the FA concussion protocol to enable a safe return to play once he is symptom free.”
