Smith safely released from hospital

Smith safely released from hospital

Southend, and the player himself of course, have been boosted by the news that Paul Smith has been "safely released" from hospital following a nasty collision on Tuesday.

The keeper was knocked out following an accidental clash with Deon Burton and needed almost ten-minutes of on field treatment before being taken off and taken to hospital.

A scan confirmed that no serious damage was sustained but the 32-year-old did pick up a neck injury that will almost certainly keep him out of the weekend game with Exeter.
