Kioso Suffers Concussion In Chesterfield Win

27 November 2019

Peter Kioso looks likely to miss Sunday's FA Cup tie at

Exeter City but the injury suffered by the defender on Tuesday night at

Chesterfield is not as bad as had first been feared.

The defender left the field on a stretcher following ten

minutes of on-pitch treatment during the latter stages of the 5-1 win at The

Proact Stadium and was taken to Chesterfield Royal Hospital.

Thankfully, medical staff there were able to quickly rule

out any significant injury but the 20-year-old was treated for concussion

before being allowed to travel home in the early hours of the morning.

“Peter wasn't able to pass the tests we use on the pitch for

neck and spinal injuries so we had concerns and the doctor and paramedics weren't

happy,” explained the Club's Sports Therapist, Callum Davidson.

“He was put in a neck brace and stretchered from the pitchas a precaution, before being taken directly to the local hospital.

“They immediately carried out further scans and assessments

which ruled out any serious head or spinal injuries but did diagnose him with a

concussion.

“We won't really know how severe that is until we see how he

responds in the coming days but he will now follow the FA's concussion

protocols.

“We would like to thank the medical staff at Chesterfieldand also those who looked after him at the hospital for all their help.”
