Troost-Ekong didn’t complete the game as he came off for Craig Cathcart in the 71 minutes.
His manager said his exit from the field was not due to any serious injury.
“I believe it’s not something major, he just went off because he felt tired,” he said.
“Same with Troost-Ekong. He felt something with his hamstring, but we changed him at the right moment and it’s not something dangerous with him, we hope he is okay.”
