"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.”
