With the scores locked at 0-0 after 22 minutes, Noon appeared to collide with the corner flag - reportedly impaling his leg - before collapsing close to advertising hoardings near the side of the pitch.

The game was suspended while an ambulance arrived, with a deep cut to Noon's leg requiring hospitalisation.

After consideration, the match was called off and will now be rescheduled at a later date.

Heidelberg United released a statement after the match confirming that Noon was in hospital but "doing well", having "avoided any serious tendon damage." 

"Last night they flushed out his wound to prepare him for plastic surgery today. We thank you all for your love a support."
