Wigan Athletic Try To Attempt The Cheekiest Kick-Off Ever, But Fail Miserably

Wigan Athletic Try To Attempt The Cheekiest Kick-Off Ever, But Fail Miserably

Remember when a Middlesbrough player made headlines last month when he literally passed the ball to the opposition from kick-off?

Well, a number of Wigan Athletic players may have overshadowed that moment last night with a cheeky routine.

The League One leaders came out for the second half as the opposition were warming up, but Oxford were taking the piss slightly and seemed to be delaying kick-off.

Paul Cook's side eventually had enough of their antics after they ignored the referee's requests, and two Wigan players sprinted towards Oxford goalkeeper as they continued to warm up.

Here's the bizarre moment in all its glory:

Wigan decided to get the game underway, but referee Trevor Kettle put a stop to their unopposed attack.

As we mentioned earlier, Middlesbrough were involved in another strange kick-off moment when they entertained Championship counterparts Leeds United last month.

They secured all-three points following a 3-0 victory courtesy of a Patrick Bamford hat-trick, but a kick-off grabbed the headlines.
