Watch Woking defender Joey Jones turn away in despair at a presumed Macclesfield winner, missing the chance to clear it off the line as it gets stuck in mud.
With the score at 2-2 in the 94th minute, the ball finds its way through to Macclesfield’s Tyrone Marsh, who prods it past the goalkeeper in what looks like being a last-gasp winner for the National League leaders.
Clearly presuming as much, Jones turns back towards the centre cirle with his head in his hands – and in doing so, he fails to see the ball get held up in mud before crossing the goal line.
An alert Danny Whitehead swoops in to score a goal that puts Macclesfield six points clear at the top of the table, and one that could ultimately relegate Woking.
Here is another view of the bizarre winner:
What a way to win the game… you have to see this!
