Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth has sent his well wishes to Sunderland midfielder Corry Evans, following the latter’s horrific injury in the 3-3 draw at Adams Park.

With the scores level at 2-2, a long ball over the top found Garath McCleary who ran through on the Sunderland goal.

However, the Blacks Cats keeper, Anthony Pattison, did well to rush off his line and head the ball away from danger, but, his momentum saw him collide with his own teammate after 71 minutes.

Medics from both Sunderland and Wycombe were called on to help the stricken Northern Irishman, who was eventually taken off via a stretcher after nine minutes of treatment.

As he was taken off the Adams Park pitch, he received a round of applause from all four corners of the ground.

Speaking after the draw, he said: “Perspective is huge and if Corry Evans is injured badly then all my prayers go out to him.

“You don’t want to see that on a football pitch.

“Their keeper was super brave and so was Corry going into that challenge.

“It looked like a nasty one, but, everyone at Wycombe wishes Corry all the best and we wish him a speedy recovery.

“When you’re out on the pitch, you don’t expect to get badly hurt as you want to enjoy the game.

“He has put his heart on the line for Sunderland and I just hope he is not too badly injured.

“I think Garath [McCleary] was right in there and being the small one, I think he slipped out of two huge guys hitting each other and when he came off [Evans], he seemed conscious and I gave him a thumbs up.

“I wish him a speedy recovery.”

Sunderland manager Lee Johnson said: "He’s okay – he was knocked out and it was a long, anxious wait after a brave action. It’s good to hear he’s alright.”
