English Football Match Hit With Yet Another ‘Medical Emergency’
English football was hit again last night with yet another “medical emergency” as a game between Sunderland and Burton Albion had to be delayed by nearly an hour due to a fan collapsing in the stadium.
Referee Robert Lewis was forced to suspend the game after just four minutes after a supporter situated in Sunderland’s West Stand required treatment.
The players remained on the pitch for 10 minutes while the fan received medical assistance before returning to their dressing rooms.
They only returned to the pitch around 50 minutes later and then had to warm up again before the game was restarted.
