Scully impressed between sticks against Dundee and Ross County
PARTICK THISTLE goalkeeper Ryan Scully has been exiled from the team after suffering concussion.
The teenage shotstopper, who won rave reviews for his performances against Dundee and Ross County, cruelly lost his place in the team after bashing his head in a training ground accident last week.
Now the keeper faces a short spell on the sidelines as he recovers from a hefty dose of concussion.
Jags gaffer Jackie McNamara said: "Ryan was hurt on Thursday. He was concussed so he has to be cleared by the club's medical staff before he returns."
Scully, who turned 19 earlier this month, was thrust into action against Dundee on October 19 after Scott Fox picked up a virus.
And the Jags' youth product excelled as he helped Thistle defeat the Taysiders 1-0 before going down by the same scoreline to league leaders County.
Meanwhile, Thistle will be involved in another Friday Night Football fixture early in the new year when they travel to face Hamilton Accies on January 13.
The game, which will kick off at 7.45pm at New Douglas Park, has been brought forward a day following consultation between both clubs, the Scottish Football League and Strathclyde Police.
