Watford proved their promotion credentials as they came from 2-0 down to beat Leeds 3-2 in an Elland Road thriller.

United had led through Billy Sharp and a Rodolph Austin wonder goal but were unable to maintain their frenetic pace and were duly unpicked by Slavisa Jokanovic's dangerous side.

The automatic promotion hopefuls pulled one back before half-time thanks to a clinical Troy Deeney finish and then a double from Matej Vydra sealed the turnaround to put them a point off the top.

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 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!"

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."
