Reports from the ground suggest that he took a “whack in the head” in the latter stages of the match.

After the knock, Leahy was down on the turf.

The 30-year-old was then stretchered off the pitch after a lengthy medical check and the game resumed.

It was the second injury for Wycombe in the match as striker Brandon Hanlan was taken off the pitch on a stretcher receiving oxygen.

After the game, Wycombe confirmed that both players had been taken to hospital and that Leahy was “conscious” following his injury.

A statement read: “Both Brandon Hanlan and Luke Leahy have been taken to hospital for assessment after sustaining injuries in today’s game.

“We are relieved to report that Luke is conscious and undergoing treatment.”

Fans were quick to share their concern for the Wycombe star on social media.

One posted: “Sounds like Luke Leahy has had a horrific injury today. Reminds you that some things are more important than football scores. Hope he’s okay.”

A second commented: “Hope he is ok.”

A third wrote: “Thoughts to Luke Leahy.”

A fourth said: “Get well soon @lukeleahy. I still have the shirt you gave me a couple of years ago. x”

Another added: “Really hoping @lukeleahy is OK.”

SunSport have contacted Wycombe for comment.

Stevenage won the game 1-0 after Jamie Reid scored in the first half.

His goal came in at 45+14′ as there was also a long stoppage for Hanlan’s injury.
