Fleck collapses in Blades win at Reading


John Fleck was given oxygen on the pitch before he was carried off

Jayden Bogle’s strike gave Sheffield United a narrow win at Reading in a match overshadowed by Blades midfielder John Fleck’s collapse.

The Scotland international required medical attention after collapsing off the ball midway through the second half.

Fleck was helped back to his feet and given oxygen by medical staff before being stretchered off.

Defender Bogle’s volley just before the hour helped the visitors to their first win in four matches.

After the match Sheffield United tweeted that Fleck was “conscious when he left the stadium via the ambulance gate”.

The 30-year-old collapsed off the ball just after the hour mark and play was stopped for 10 minutes.

Earlier Bogle had put the visitors deservedly in front, stabbing in David McGoldrick’s deep cross.

United had also gone close to an opener in the first half when Wolves loanee Morgan Gibbs-White struck the crossbar from a direct free-kick.

Reading offered little after going behind as the visitors held on to all three points.
