Rebels manager John Caulfield confirmed that he has regained consciousness after incident tonight.

Cork City's Brian Lenihan is taken off injured 25/72014 Lenihan is stretchered off the pitch before being brought to hospital.

CORK CITY’S BRIAN Lenihan was taken to hospital this evening after a bad fall during their 2-0 loss to Bohemians.

The SSE Airtricity League Premier Division sides met at Dalymount Park and, on 68 minutes, the highly-rated defender contested a header with Paddy Kavanagh but came down awkwardly.

There was a lengthy delay in play and medical staff acted swiftly to take the 20-year-old, who has been linked with a move to Arsenal in recent months, to nearby Mater Hospital.

Referee Neil Doyle then opted to play 13 minutes of additional time at the end of the 90.

Speaking to Setanta Sports after the final whistle, Cork boss John Caulfield confirmed that he has regained conscious: “He came around there and is conscious, which is good.

He just fell awkwardly and he was out of it for awhile but he is after coming out of it. We still don’t know the exact details but at least he’s concious anyway.

“He was in the arms of good medical people so you presume that he was going to come around and thankfully he has. I didn’t really think calling off the game was an option.”
