x-ray is clear for midfielder with MRI scan to follow

Northampton Town manager Rob Page has said that an x-ray has confirmed that midfielder Jak McCourt didn't suffer any broken bones during Tuesday night's pre-season game at Nuneaton Town.

McCourt was injured late in the game as he headed a corner away, leading to the referee ending the game a few minutes early to allow McCourt to receive lengthy treatment on the pitch.

While the full extent of the injury isn't yet confirmed, Page says that the result of the initial x-ray is a positive.

"Jak hasn't broken any bones, which is good news," said the Cobblers boss.

"We think his shoulder may have popped out and gone straight back in again so he will be having an MRI scan to see if there is any ligament or muscle damage in the area.

"We may not know the results of that scan until Thursday, but for now we are pleased and relieved that he didn't suffer any broken bones."
