That's a bad do, It's a shame for the player. Chances were he might have been off to Stoke. We've had no luck with injuries this season. That's three first team regulars plus young Butterworth all out with season ending injuries.

Tony has his excuses in with Pune now - for sure.

He's out of contract the end of next season so he will probably put in a handful of good performances at the end of this season and the beginning of next. Because let's be honest he is now incredibly in his seventh season at the club and he has only ever put a run of good performances together when he needs a new contract.  

Evans has contract to 2022.

I think this could be the end for him to be honest if he has a fractured skull only have to look at Joe Mason recently to see its not something that is easily recovered from.. I think he is a lot better than a lot give him credit for and will be a miss

Depends whether another blow to the face could endanger his eyesight

I've fractured my skull previously and was advised never to play contact sports again without protection. Granted mine was particularly bad and I also had a bleed on the brain.

Severe head injuries can also impact you in other ways bringing on anxiety and other issues.

Wishing him a speedy recovery.

A nightmare for the lad, and big blow for supporters of Rovers and N Ireland. 

Hopefully it isn't as bad as it sounds and we see him again before the end of the season.

Broken nose, broken cheekbone, shattered eye socket and a frontal skull fracture - and the Preston guy initially said he didn't even make contact with him.

All the best to Corry on his recovery. Sounds like a bad one.

And the Ref didn't think it was worthy of even a yellow, IIRC.

I'm not suggesting VAR for fouls/cards but when you add 7 mins stoppage time . . . ,

Sorry, I should have added that I, too, hope it isn't a career-ending injury for the sake of the lad who I, too, wish a full recovery.

Not even deemed a yellow. And it’s not like he had his head really low.

To be fair, the North End player never saw him coming. At first I thought it was very tame and that Evans was play-acting and overdoing it. Obviously I was horribly wrong. But I still think it was a pure accident.

I wish Evans all the best. What awful injuries we have had this season.

Accident or not it’s clearly dangerous play

In which case every bicycle kick which scores a goal should be penalised and the goal disallowed.
