Guy Demel released from hospital after head injury
West Ham defender Guy Demel has been released from hospital after suffering a head injury during Saturday’s 2-0 win away at Cardiff.
Demel, 32, required oxygen as he left on a stretcher after falling awkwardly following what seemed an innocuous collision with City’s Fraizer Campbell.
The Ivory Coast international suffered concussion and was unconscious for several minutes.
A red card for fit-again James Tomkins added to West Ham’s defensive problems and manager Sam Allardyce is also without injured central defensive duo Winston Reid and James Collins.
Prior to Saturday’s 1-0 league win, West Ham had conceded 11 goals in the previous two matches.
