BARNSLEY match-day volunteer Stephen Croft came to thank Burton Albion's squad five months after suffering a cardiac arrest on the Oakwell pitch.
The Albion players spotted his distress last September and physio Nick Fenton raced over to give him medical attention.
The game was called off after the Air Ambulance came to Oakwell and was re-arranged and played last night.
Before the game Stephen, who is now on the road to recovery, came to the Brewers dressing room to meet the Brewers squad and receive an Albion shirt.
Nigel Clough said: “It’s lovely to see Stephen up and around and it has been an inspiration for the lads to see him tonight.”
Stephen also took time to send a video message to Albion fans.
