MK Dons manager Russell Martin has sent his condolences and wishes to the family of Wycombe Wanderers supporter, Mark Bird.

Mark, 62, was at Adams Park and was ready to watch Wycombe take on Blackpool on Tuesday, January 28.

However, he suffered a cardiac arrest roughly an hour before kick-off, with the game being delayed by more than an hour. 

Wycombe eventually won the match 2-1, but Mark sadly lost his life later that evening.

On the same day at MK Dons' match against Rochdale at Stadium: MK, MK fan Chris Saunders also suffered a heart attack but survived. 

Following the news, MK Dons manager Russell Martin said: “It’s hugely important to say that there were two really bad incidents for both clubs on Tuesday night and unfortunately at Wycombe, Mark lost his life which is a tragic incident.

"This is something that goes well beyond football and I’d like to send our condolences personally and as a football club, as it wasn’t nice to see after our game.

"Wycombe is a club where I’ve got a lot of friends still where I know a lot of people, so it’s very sad.

"And of course, we had an incident over here on Tuesday night.

"Fortunately for Chris and his family, he has come through OK and fingers crossed we get to see him in the next week or two as he makes his way to recovery.
