Huddersfield defender Tommy Smith has been airlifted to hospital following an apparent heavy collision with his own team-mate Joe Murphy.

The incident occurred in the 90th minute of Town's 2-1 defeat against Leeds at the John Smith's Stadium.

Smith was beaten to a cross by Leeds striker Billy Sharp, who headed a last-gasp winner for the visitors, before the centre-back seemed to collide with goalkeeper Murphy.

A Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust spokeswoman said: "We received a call at 14.28 to reports of a medical emergency at Huddersfield.

"Two ambulances were sent and the air ambulance was in attendance.The air ambulance took one patient to Leeds General Infirmary."

Huddersfield manager Chris Powell said in his post-match press conference: "I am shocked after seeing that. I made sure I saw him and his family and hopefully everything will be okay."

"I have done my best for a club and fans that I hold close to my heart and it is now financially much stronger than it has been for a long time. It will continue to thrive and I am sincerely looking forward to returning very soon."

Italian businessman Massimo Cellino has been disqualified from buying a majority stake in Leeds under the Football League's 'owners and directors' test', the League has announced.

The Football League said its board had "agreed unanimously that the decision of the Italian Court does constitute a disqualifying condition" under its Owners' and Directors' Test.

Mr Cellino is entitled to appeal within 14 days.
