    De Barr, 22, was a second-half sub for the visitors in their League One loss at Argyle’s Home Park stadium.

    Paramedics rushed over to the player as he lay on the floor in front of concerned supporters and teammates.

    After a brief spell, De Barr was then placed onto a stretcher and carried off the pitch.

    He was taken to hospital and was accompanied in the ambulance by boss Wycombe Gareth Ainsworth.

    Tweeting after the game, Wanderers said: “There was a medical incident at full-time involving Tjay De Barr.

    “We thank the staff for their swift action and await news of his condition.”

    It is unknown what caused De Barr to collapse, but during the match he was reportedly left puffing after a collision with an opponent.

    But Wycombe later added: “Tjay De Barr has been treated on-site by medics and is in a good condition, but will go to hospital for further tests.

    “Thank you to everyone for their well wishes, and to the medical staff for their swift and expert assistance.”

    Fans were quick to send messages wishing the Gibraltarian well on social media after the distressing scenes.

    One said: “All thoughts this evening with Tjay De Barr.”

    Another wrote: “Argyle fan here hoping to hear good news, felt sick walking home.”

    One noted: “Not nice to see , hope he makes a speedy recovery.”

    Another added: “This is the main thing that matters most tonight, best wishes on behalf of me and all Argyle fans to the lad.”

    De Barr joined Wycombe on a free transfer in August 2021 and scored once in eight games last term.

    He spent the second half of the campaign on loan at National League side Eastleigh, playing four times.

    De Barr’s cameo against Plymouth was his fifth appearance of the current season, and the ace also has three goals in 30 games for Gibraltar.
