Huddersfield Town's Tommy Smith discharged after head injury

2 February 2015

Huddersfield Town defender Tommy Smith has been discharged from hospital following a head injury suffered in Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Leeds United.

The 22-year-old was airlifted to Leeds General Infirmary after being knocked unconscious following a heavy collision with team-mate Joe Murphy in the build-up to United's winner.

That prompted a near 10-minute delay in the game as Smith was treated on the pitch before being carried off on a stretcher and airlifted to hospital.

The club confirmed last night that Smith was in a stable condition but was kept in overnight under observation.

However, he has now been released and will continue his recovery at home.

A tweet from Huddersfield's official Twitter account read: "Tommy Smith has been discharged & is now home. #htafc is looking forward to seeing him back in action once he gets the full all-clear!"
