Down the Line: Headlines from the football league


Jack’s on the road to recovery after scare

LEEDS’ teenage winger Jack Clarke is out of hospital after collapsing during the draw at Middlesbrough, but will sit out training this week.

The 18-year-old was discharged from hospital on Saturday night having been given oxygen and seen by paramedics after being taken ill.

He had been substituted at half-time but later complained of feeling unwell while in the away dug-out.

Leeds managing director Angus Kinnear said: ‘He will undergo some more tests this week and everything is looking well.’


Hatters victory keeps them in pole position

LUTON equalled a 50-year record by extending their unbeaten run to 19 matches in a 3-0 win over Wycombe.

The Hatters have Mick Harford in caretaker charge after Nathan Jones left for Stoke last month.

The 59-year-old, who has made the best start ever by a Luton manager, said: ‘The players get all my accolades because they’re the ones who go out and do the business.’


Scholes finally lands role at beloved Latics

PAUL SCHOLES has been named as manager of his local club Oldham.

The former Manchester United midfielder, 44, had to wait for EFL clearance to take up the post because of his ten per cent stake in National League title chasers Salford.

An EFL board meeting decided last week there is no conflict of interest and Scholes will be unveiled today.
