Taking weakened Carling Cup sides to a new level

Barnsley failed to score during their Carling Cup defeat to Manchester United, but the net did ripple in injury time when a fan took it upon himself to bag a goal for the Tykes.

Presumably inspired by this Russian fan, a Barnsley supporter ran onto the pitch to interrupt a Ben Foster goal-kick. Immediately appreciating why football players wear studs, the trainer-clad pitch invader loses his footing allowing Foster to close him down and get a foot on the ball.

The pitch invader manages to bundle the ball to an accomplice who, despite appearing to be in an offside position, makes no mistake with the finish.

    ha, better finish than nani could manage.
