Bender back at home after injury scare
Thursday 06 October 2011
The accrington defender Tom Bender has been released from hospital. The 18-year-old, who is on loan from Colchester, is now recovering at home after suffering severe concussion during Tuesday night's Johnstone's Paint Trophy match with Tranmere, which was then abandoned. Bender needed 30 minutes of treatment on the pitch, including oxygen and a drip, before an ambulance arrived, following the collision with his team-mate Ian Dunbavin. Bender's father, Lee, said: "Tom's OK. He's in good spirits. He doesn't remember too much about it." PA
