Published Add your comment

The Carling Cup second round clash between Nottingham Forest and Leicester at the City Ground was abandoned after Foxes defender Clive Clarke collapsed in the dressing room.

Paramedics rushed down the tunnel to attend to Clarke shortly after the half-time whistle and a Leicester spokesman confirmed the player was receiving medical attention in an ambulance and was conscious.

The restart was initially delayed for 15 minutes before a further 10-minute delay was announced over the tannoy.
