Adam King collapsed on the field of play last night during Alloa's Championship play-off semi-final against Hamilton.

The former Hearts man was treated for around three minutes by medics as he lay on the pitch.

The Indodrill Stadium fell silent as paramedics were called on to assist King, who was eventually stretchered off after the incident.

King collapsed off the ball at the edge of the box in the 20th minute of the game.

It's said that Accies manager John Rankin was screaming for play to be halted and for a physio to attend to him.

Thankfully, he was conscious when he was taken off the pitch and is believed to have spoken to Alloa boss Brian Rice before being taken away for assessment.

Luke Donnelly replaced King as a first-half substitute and proved to be the difference-maker in the tie by scoring the winner before the interval.

Luke Donnelly, who came on as a sub for King, scored in first-half stoppage time to put Alloa 1-0 up.

King started his career at Tynecastle, coming through the youth setup at Hearts. 

He went on to play for Swansea, Crewe, Dundee United, Queen's Park, and Raith Rovers before eventually joining Alloa in 2021. 

A further update has yet to be provided on King at this time.
