The Premier League game was abandoned as medics raced to save his life before he was rushed to hospital.

Fortunately the Welsh centre-back was discharged from hospital before Christmas to continue his recovery.

Lockyer then posted a statement via his social media channels to provide supporters with an update on his condition as he thanked the “heroic” actions” of the people that saved him.

Now a new date for the game has been announced.

A statement from Bournemouth said: “AFC Bournemouth’s home fixture against Luton Town has been rearranged for Wednesday 13th March (7.30pm kick-off).

“Further details will be confirmed at midday tomorrow.”

The match was abandoned in the 59th minute after Lockyer suffered a cardiac arrest on the pitch.

The score was 1-1 when the Wales international fell to the ground. 

Lockyer had previously undergone minor heart surgery in the summer after collapsing at Wembley in the Championship play-off final win.
