In the second half of Sheffield United's 1-0 triumph against Reading in the English Championship on Tuesday, midfielder John Fleck had to be carried off on a stretcher.

When Fleck fell down seemingly unopposed in the 56th minute, his worried teammates signaled to medical staff to rush on to the pitch and treat their ailing comrade.

Fleck, 30, looked to undergo medical treatment before being carried off on a stretcher and out of Madejski Stadium to a waiting ambulance after a 10-minute halt.

"He is in hospital, he is conscious and he asked for the result," Blades manager Slavisa Jokanovic told reporters after the game when asked about Fleck's condition.

"Hopefully he we will be okay. He is safe, in good hands and we pray that everything will be okay," he added.
