Suspected fractured cheekbone for on-loan Swans youngster

Young left-back Stephen Kingsley, one of a trio of youngsters on loan at Yeovil, had to leave the field tonight on a stretcher with a suspected broken cheekbone

It's never nice to have to report injury news, but it appears Stephen Kingsley may have suffered a serious injury playing on loan for Yeovil against Walsall tonight.

Just six minutes in he reportedly collided with Walsall striker Tom Bradshaw and was knocked unconscious, needing lengthy treatment before having to be stretchered off. Caretaker-boss Terry Skiverton used the phrase "there were teeth on the pitch and everything", and early reports indicate Kingsley may have suffered a broken cheekbone.

Our thoughts are with him. Hopefully the injury isn't as bad as first feared, and that that he recovers soon.
