Wyke is the second Football League star to collapse this week.

Sheffield United’s John Fleck collapsed during their game away at Reading.

Fleck was rushed to hospital but discharged the next day.

FC Sheriff star Adama Traore also collapsed on Wednesday in their Champions League clash against Real Madrid.

Traore evaded a challenge from Nacho Fernandez, but the 26-year-old appeared uncomfortable afterwards.

As the ball went out for a throw in he turned around, before clutching his chest and falling to the ground.

The incident thankfully occurred right by the touchline, meaning club medics were able to attend to him quickly.
