Watford have issued an update on a supporter who needed medical treatment during the game against Tottenham Hotspur on New Year's Day.

The game was stopped five minutes from its climax as a fan, named only as Craig, suffered a seizure in the Graham Taylor Stand.

Club doctors and medics rushed over to deal with the situation as quickly as they could, and play was able to resume just five minutes later.

The supporter has told the club he aims to be back in his seat for the Norwich City match in two weeks' time.

The club said: "Watford FC is pleased to learn that supporter Craig, who had a seizure during the New Year’s Day fixture at home to Tottenham Hotspur, is now recovering well at home.

Craig’s father Paul has asked the Hornets to pass on the family’s thanks to everyone who acted swiftly to help ensure prompt and appropriate medical attention was given to Craig on the day.

Paul says Craig is hoping to be back in his usual Lower Graham Taylor Stand season ticket seat in time for the club’s next home game in a couple of weeks’ time."

It is not the first time a match has been halted temporarily due to a medical incident at Vicarage Road this season.

A supporter suffered a heart attack during the match against Chelsea, stopping the match for around 25 minutes.
