Luton Town boss Mike Newell has revealed that Hatters defender Sol Davis was absent for the 5-0 defeat to Ipswich because he suffered a stroke on Saturday.

 

The 27-year-old is currently in a specialist unit at Addenbrookes hospital in Cambridge after suffering a stroke less than half an hour after the Bedfordshire-based team left for the game at Portman Road.

 

The Championship club have released no concrete details about Davis' condition as they await further news, although Newell did state that the former Swindon Town man had improved somewhat after losing feeling in his left side.

 

However Newell has been told it could take up to six months for Davis to make a full recovery.

 

"We kept quiet about it until after the match but it puts everything into perspective," said Newell.

 

"It happened 25 minutes after leaving Luton and I am told that it might take six months before he makes a complete recovery.

 

"He has had an MRI scan but I am not qualified to talk about that.

 

"I am not going to use it as an excuse for our performance but we will never know what effect it had on the lads.

 

"Sol has made a bit of an improvement but he lost feeling in his left side and it has affected his speech.

 

"It was apparently a blockage to the brain that has caused it, but I will not go into full details as I am not sure what they are."

Had to re-read that bit about 3 times before I realised Newell wasn't taking the piss out of the poor bloke! Hope he recovers.
