Luton captain Tom Lockyer went through a medical emergency early in the game as he collapsed in the 12th minute.
The team’s medical staff rushed to his side and attended to the Welshman, providing extensive treatment and administering oxygen. He was then stretchered off to the medical room inside the stadium and then later taken to the hospital.
Luton meanwhile scored a goal in the first half through Jordan Clark but Coventry equalised in the 66th minute. The game went on to extra time and then penalties where Luton ultimately came out on top and won the promotion to the Premier League.

He tweeted: Tom’s Dad here. Tom is ok. Very happy but so sad he can’t be there with his team mates. Here is the moment…
