Blues keeper attacked by pitch invader
A PITCH invader who lunged at Wycombe Wanderers goalkeeper Jordan Archer marred Blues’ 1-0 win at Gillingham this evening.
In full glare of the watching Sky Sports cameras a young fan ran from the home end and jumped on Archer’s back as he placed the ball down for a goal kick.
A steward had to wrestle the youth to the ground after the incident, which happened towards the end of the game.
Gillingham manager Martin Allen said the fan’s actions were “absolutely crazy” and “not a true reflection of our football club”.
Wanderers boss Gareth Ainsworth said: “He’ll be dealt with by Gillingham and the authorities. In my opinion what he did was wrong and he’s given the rest of the Gillingham fans a bad name. They’ll be as annoyed as anyone at him.
“The less I comment the better because I need to see it again.
“I’m not sure what we’re going to do as a club. I’ll sit down and speak to the relevant people at my club and see what they want to say. At the moment I can’t really comment any further on that.”
He added Archer was uninjured by the incident.
