Update: Adam Jackson

28 February 2018

The defender was carried from the pitch on a stretcher just before half-time in Tuesday night’s 1-1 draw with Hull City at the KCOM Stadium.

A mid-air clash with Hull’s Jon Toral saw both players receive lengthy medical treatment and leave the field to be replaced. 

The Club can confirm that following the match, Jackson was treated well by Barnsley Football Club’s and Hull City’s medical staff along with the paramedics at the ground, and he regained consciousness quickly. Following the match, Jackson was sat up talking to his teammates and family whilst still in the medical room at the KCOM Stadium.

Jose Morais spoke after the game and offered an update on his defender’s injury.

He said: “I was so sorry for that to happen to him. I’m sorry because it’s the health of a player and you get concerned about these situations. I’m sorry again because he really wanted to be on the pitch until the end of the game, but I am happy now because everything seems to be good.  

“It looks like he is back to being healthy. I have had a chat with him and seen him smiling and eat. It makes me feel that he is now ok and I am happy for that. Our medical staff were excellent, they got on to see Adam straight away and helped him to regain consciousness. We’ll keep looking at Adam closely over the coming days and make sure he is ok, he is an important player for us.”  

Morais added: "I don't know the condition of Toral, I haven't seen him, but I know it was a heavy collision for both players so we would like to send our best to him as well. Both players had to come off and it isn't nice to see, I think it changed the game for the players out there and we hope both Adam and Jon recover quickly."

Adam would like to thank everyone for the well wishes he has received, along with the medical staff of Hull City and the paramedics who were at the scene.
