Skipper sent home after all-clear from scans

We are delighted to inform all Hatters fans that Scott Cuthbert has been released from Luton & Dunstable Hospital after his worrying injury during this afternoon's win over Doncaster.

The Town captain went down after challenging Rovers counterpart James Coppinger as he fired in the goal that put the visitors 1-0 up in the 21st minute.

A seven-minute hold-up followed as Scott was prone on the ground, then moved to a stretcher and carried off to warm applause from all parts of the ground.

In the last few minutes, physio Simon Parsell told "Scott got injured in a block challenge with their striker in front of the main stand just before the goal, and we thought he might have dislocated his shoulder.

"Then he went back and headed a ball, which compressed his neck into his arm, and as he hit the deck seconds later trying to close their goalscorer down, he's hit his arm again.

"At the time he had pain in his neck and couldn't feel his arm, so we couldn't take any risks.

"He went to hospital where they've done scans on his neck, back and head - and thankfully they've come back all clear.

"He's back on the group chat with the lads and in a cab heading home to his wife and baby daughter, which is the most important thing, and we thank everyone for their great treatment of him."

All at Kenilworth Road echo that, and thank the travelling Doncaster supporters for the sporting reception they gave Scott as he was treated right in front of them at the Oak Road End.
