Watch Crawley Town player score calamitous own goal against Accrington Stanley

first_imgIt’s a horrible feeling for any player to score an own goal but this one is on another level of embarrassment. Crawley’s Jimmy Smith is the unfortunate victim in this case in his side’s League Two encounter at home to Accrington Stanley. The Red Devils were 2-0 up and cruising but the visitors got back in the game in bizarre circumstances. Josh Lenan seemingly dealt with a menacing Stanley attack only for his clearance to rebound off Smith’s head and into the net. Fortunately for Smith, the game finished 2-1 so it did not cost Crawley any points but it’s likely Smith’s team-mates will not let him forget this one in a hurry! Watch the own goal below… 🤦 Jimmy Smith 🤦 is caught in the wrong place as a cleared ball strikes him in the face to make a rather comical own-goal for @ASFCofficial against @crawleytown. #ASFC #Crawley.➡️ @EFL highlights from 9pm on @channel5_tv. pic.twitter.com/hPutRsoIS4— Channel 5 Sport (@Channel5Sport) January 27, 2018 The own goal left the crowd and many of the players rather confused center_img 1last_img read more
