Fack, get better Humey!

Barnsley striker Iain Hume is understood to have been moved to a high dependency unit in hospital after being treated for a fractured skull.

The Canadian was injured in Saturday's South Yorkshire derby against Sheffield United at Oakwell.

His condition deteriorated on Sunday and he was taken in for surgery.

The 25-year-old was hurt in a clash with Sheffield United skipper Chris Morgan as both challenged for a header in the first half.

Morgan, who started his career at Barnsley, was booked for the incident by referee Andy D'Urso.

The Blades went onto the game 2-1.

Barnsley striker and Canadian international Iain Hume who suffered a fractured skull last Saturday in an English League Championship 2-1 loss to Sheffield United has been moved out of the high dependency unity of a Manchester Hospital after weekend surgery.

During the match, Hume was struck by an elbow from Sheffield United captain Chris Morgan.

“I went to see Iain yesterday evening and he is conscious although he has not slept since the incident and he is not the most talkative,†Barnsley manager Simon Davey said on the club's website on Tuesday. “He is out of the high dependency unit now and they have moved him onto a hospital ward, which is good news, although he has tubes sticking out of his head.

“The operation went well but he is very down and very angry. He has a scar that runs from his forehead in the shape of a horseshoe right round to his ear. He is black and blue, his head is swollen and he is a mess.â€

Hume, 25, was born in Edinburgh, Scotland and his hometown is Brampton, Ont. He has 27 senior caps for Canada and has scored two goals.
