Subsequently, the Premier League Board decided to reschedule the fixture for a later date in the season, with ticket information to be provided by both clubs once a specific date is confirmed, according to BBC reports.

This incident is not the first time Lockyer has faced a medical emergency on the field, as earlier this year, he collapsed during Luton's play-off final against Coventry City at Wembley Stadium. 

Having a history of a heart condition, specifically atrial flutter, Lockyer underwent corrective surgery after the May collapse and was subsequently cleared to participate in the Premier League. 

The decision to replay the game underscores the gravity of the situation and the Premier League's commitment to player safety. 

The distressing nature of the incident was acknowledged, and the swift response of the medical staff was praised. 

Luton Town has indicated that Lockyer's recovery plan will be determined based on the results of his tests and scans, emphasizing the significance of prioritizing his health and privacy during this period.
