West Brom's Championship game against Bristol City was delayed by 15 minutes after a medical emergency involving a home fan.
The Baggies, who beat Bristol City 3-0 at The Hawthorns, confirmed the delay in an initial statement on Twitter, with the match kicking off at the revised time of 3.15pm.
The spectator was carried away on a stretcher but was conscious and gave a thumbs-up gesture to the crowd on the way out, before a second delay to begin the second half when a Bristol City fan was taken ill in the away end.
In an update posted after full-time, West Brom confirmed both fans had been taken to hospital and remained conscious.
We are pleased to report the two supporters who were taken ill at today's game are conscious in hospital, where they will receive further treatment. We wish them each a speedy recovery 💙❤️— West Bromwich Albion (@WBA) October 23, 2021
We would also like to thank both sets of fans for their patience and understanding 🙌
The statement read: "We are pleased to report the two supporters who were taken ill at today's game are conscious in hospital, where they will now receive further treatment.
"We wish them each a speedy recovery. We would also like to thank both sets of fans for their patience and understanding."
The respective delays came after 10 minutes of first-half stoppage time were played, largely due to an injury to City defender Nathan Baker.
The incidents were also less than a week after a similar situation involving a Newcastle supporter during their 3-2 home Premier League defeat to Tottenham last Sunday.
