A farcical scene from Millwall’s clash with Brentford in the Championship on Good Friday has been widely shared after viewers noticed three dives in less than 15 seconds.

Brentford played out a 1-1 draw with their hosts at The Den after being reduced to ten men midway through the first-half when captain Henrik Dalsgaard was dismissed.

As visiting defender Mads Bech Sørensen lay injured, a minor brawl ensued that saw a lot of pushing and shoving.

In the short clip, two players can be seen falling to the floor a total of three times after seemingly light contact.

Watching over the quarrelling group, referee Jeremy Simpson stands back and shakes his head.
