Sheffield Wednesday fan Tango speaks for the first time on social media since being hospitalised after an alleged incident with stewards.
The fan, Paul Gregory, posted a photo of himself from his hospital bed with an update to his followers after the League One game away at Bolton Wanderers earlier this month.
Over 5,000 Owls fans made the trip to the UoB Stadium a few weeks back with the standard of stewarding heavily complained about online.

Bolton stewards were accused of pushing the fan over while others say that he was dragged and the security staff had been heavy handed.
More photos emerges of the supporter laying on the concrete next to an ambulance after being taken out of the stands with the potentially match still in play with supporters still in the stands.
After some time in hospital, he posted a further tweet, stating that he managed to attend the awaygame at Milton keynes Dons.
“Strange one today , MK Dons bound, car fuelled, wheelchair loaded and pain relief taken what the difference a week makes , But don’t look back in anger, Cmon Wednesday, Happy Easter one and all, Much Love 🦉🦉💙💙”
He then praised goalscorer Barry Bannan: “Oh yes me main man , The Legend Who Is Barry Bannan 💙🤍💙🤍🦉🦉”
