Cullen off to hospital

Filed: Sunday, 7th January 2018
By: Staff Writer

Josh Cullen has been taken to hospital after losing a tooth during this afternoon's goalless draw at Shrewsbury.

The Southend-born midfielder parted company with one of his molars midway through the second half after having it kicked out following a challenge by Town's Abu Ogogo.

As you can see from the footage above Cullen's departing tooth was clearly visible on TV cameras, but was soon collected by the medical team as he received treatment on the field.

The closest hospital to the ground is the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital, some three miles away. West Ham will face a replay against the League One side next week as a result of today's stalemate.
