Melbourne City have provided an update on the wellbeing of goalkeeper Tom Glover, confirming that the 24-year-old required stitches due to a laceration inflicted on him by football thugs.

City’s match with arch rivals Melbourne Victory was abandoned on Saturday night after fans encroached the pitch and attacked Glover, who had thrown a flare in their direction moments beforehand.

Glover was pictured sporting a nasty cut beside his right eye after a fan threw a bin at his face, in scenes that have shamed Australian football.

City initially said that the 24-year-old was most likely concussed from the assault, and have now provided a further update. 

‘Tom was assessed by our club doctor immediately following tonight’s incident and required several stitches due to a laceration to his face,’ the A-League club tweeted. ‘He was taken to hospital for scans and further follow up checks.’
