Dublin: 21°C Saturday 13 August 2022

It may be the first day of 2015 but we already have a contender for own goal of the year

Look away now, Newcastle fans.

PAUL DUMMETT WON’T want to watch Match of the Day this evening.

Mangerless Newcastle were taking on Burnley at St James’ Park today and after Steven Taylor’s early goal gave the hosts the lead, they were pegged back by this comical own goal.

With little or no danger around, Dummett attempted to deftly head the ball back to his goalkeeper Jan Alnwick but instead, after a lack of communication, guided the ball into his own net.
