Latest Stoke City news from StokeonTrentLive brings what Bristol Rovers manager Joey Barton has said about Connor Taylor after the defender was removed from his matchday squad on Tuesday
Stoke City defender Connor Taylor will need to have surgery on his heart after missing loan side Bristol Rovers’ game against Oldham Athletic on Tuesday.
Taylor was due to start for Joey Barton’s side at Boundary Park but withdrew from the warm-up because he didn’t feel well.
He told Rovers’ medical team that his heart was racing and beating irregularly.
It is not the first time that has happened with Taylor experiencing similar during a game against Rochdale in December with Barton substituting him at half-time.
The Rovers boss confirmed that on-loan City defender Taylor, 20, felt better soon after but he was taken out of the squad with Barton keen not to take any risks.
