VIDEO: Pitch invader falls over in the box as penalty is taken at Queen of the South

Tripped in the area as spot-kick is missed in 5-0 win at Palmerston Park.


A pitch invader tripped and fell when he ran into the box as Stephen Dobbie took a penalty for Queen of the South in a 5-0 home win over Ayr United on Saturday.

A man made it into the penalty area at historic Palmerston Park in Dumfries just as the 35-year-old veteran striker takes his shot during the Scottish Championship clash.

The pitch invader collapsed as the penalty was saved and it was a rare missed opportunity for Dobbie, who has appeared for various British clubs over the years, in a game he scored four goals in.

A Queen of the South teammate appears to protest but the referee is having none of it and a corner is given.

Ayr were reduced to ten men after 79 minutes when defender Daniel Harvie was sent off in a bad tempered game that also saw 7 yellow cards.
