SAINTS have issued a further update after a fan was taken to hospital during Saturday's 1-1 draw with Rotherham at St Mary's. 

The club have stated that they cannot give a specific update on the condition of the supporter due to patient anonymity, after they were taken to hospital.

Saints insist they will include a full review of the incident and their operations in the matchday debriefing customary after each home fixture. 

The second half was delayed by 10 minutes after a supporter was administered CPR in the Itchen Stand.

Saints coaches and players from both teams attempted to alert referee John Busby after fans had indicated a potential emergency in the crowd.

Supporters applauded medical staff as the individual was taken out of the stadium on a stretcher. 

The statement adds: "Our thoughts and well-wishes are with the fan and their family during this challenging time. 

"We extend our gratitude to the stewards, paramedics, and medical professionals for their response and care.

"We would also like to thank the other supporters in the area who reacted quickly and helped to allow an effective medical response through their helpful behaviour."

Saints initially issued this statement, on Saturday, to the Daily Echo: "Following a medical emergency just before half time at today’s game, we can confirm that the fan involved attended hospital. 

“The thoughts and well wishes of the club are with the fan affected and all their loved ones.”

Speaking after the match, manager Russell Martin said: "I don’t know (what happened) but I really hope they are okay, it’s more important than any football match.

"Fingers crossed, we get positive news tonight or tomorrow, whenever it is, as long as the news is positive."
