Jack Clarke: Leeds United teenager taken to hospital after Middlesbrough draw

Leeds United winger Jack Clarke is receiving treatment in hospital after collapsing during his side's 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough.

The 18-year-old, who had been substituted at half-time, complained of feeling unwell in the dugout and was then carried away on a stretcher while being given oxygen.

The Championship game was stopped for seven minutes due to the incident and it has been confirmed that Clarke was taken to hospital for further assessment.

Bielsa said: "What we know is that he didn't feel well".

Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa played down concerns about Clarke's well being after the worrying scenes. We don't really know the reasons yet.

"He has been taken to hospital to see if he's alright".

It is understood Leeds officials were furious at the prospect of a charge being announced before their crucial game against promotion rivals Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium today.

Pulis said: "The more important thing is making sure the boy, fingers crossed, is okay and recovers because he is a very, very talented young player".

"All our thoughts from Middlesbrough Football Club go to the lad".

Clarke has featured 16 times in the Championship this season for Bielsa's side, and received his fourth start of the league season in the contest.

Patrick Bamford returning to his former club - for whom he scored a hat-trick against Leeds past year - fired wide from four yards out with the goal gaping.

Boro had opened the scoring in the 47th minute, but Leeds' Kalvin Phillips rose to the occasion, scoring a late, late equaliser deep into added time to secure a point for the visitors.

Sheffield United lie in third position - three points off Leeds - after missing a golden opportunity of going top themselves surrendering a 3-0 lead on Friday to be held 3-3 by Aston Villa.
