Sheffield United midfielder John Fleck has been discharged from hospital after collapsing on the field during Tuesday evening's 1-0 win at Reading.

Fleck underwent comprehensive medical examinations and stayed in the Royal Berkshire Hospital overnight for observation.

United manager Slavisa Jokanovic expressed relief after the match that the 30-year-old player was "conscious and talking".

Fleck was allowed to return home on Wednesday, where he will continue to be monitored closely by the Blades' medical staff.

"Sheffield United is grateful to report that John Fleck has been discharged from hospital and will return to Sheffield today," read a statement from the Sky Bet Championship club.

"He was conscious when he was taken to the Royal Berkshire Hospital and was communicative with club and medical personnel, as well as his family.

"After comprehensive medical examinations and staying in hospital overnight for observation, he has been allowed home, where United medical staff will continue to monitor him closely.

"United and John Fleck would like to thank all who assisted at a stressful time last night and also everyone for their supportive messages."

Fleck went down off the ball just after the hour mark on Tuesday, with team-mates quickly calling for medical support.

The Scotsman was given oxygen and, after a 10-minute delay, was taken off on a stretcher and out of the ground to a waiting ambulance.

Enda Stevens, John Egan and David McGoldrick all started for the Blades, with former Irish international McGoldrick providing the assist for Jayden Bogle’s 56th-minute winner.

West Brom ended a run of four successive away defeats but gave up more ground in the automatic promotion race as they were held to a goalless draw at Blackpool.

Republic of Ireland international Jayson Molumby started in midfield for the Baggies while Callum Robinson was a second-half substitute.

West Brom keeper Sam Johnstone made a brilliant double stop to deny Gary Madine and Keshi Anderson while Matt Clarke came close to snatching a late winner for the visitors.

Chris Wilder is still waiting for his first win as Middlesbrough boss after Preston hit back from behind to claim a 2-1 win at the Riverside Stadium.

Sean Maguire and Alan Browne started for Preston, but Paddy McNair’s 33rd-minute header looked set to get Wilder’s regime up and running after he marked his debut in the dugout with Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Millwall.

But Ched Evans headed Preston’s equaliser in the 77th minute and four minutes later, Emil Riis Jakobsen lashed an unlikely winner for Frankie McAvoy’s men.

Birmingham, who started with Irish international Scott Hogan up front, ended a run of two straight defeats by clinging on for a goalless draw at former tenants Coventry despite having Ryan Woods sent off eight minutes from time.

Nottingham Forest also ended the night with 10 men after Jack Colback was sent off for two bookable offences in their goalless draw with Luton at the City Ground.
