Portsmouth defender Danny East has revealed he did not suffer a fractured neck against Wycombe on Wednesday night.

The 21-year-old had to be carried off on a stretcher and taken to hospital after falling awkwardly as he went up for a header during the 2-2 draw at Fratton Park.

There were concerns East had done himself some serious damage but the former Hull youngster allayed those fears on Twitter on Thursday morning.

He wrote: "Thank you for all the messages people! Really appreciated. Yeah it's true last night the X-Rays showed I'd fractured my neck however had some great news this morning!! Further scans have showed there doesn't seem to be a fracture."
