Referee Lee Mason was involved in a comedy moment during the Capital One Cup semifinal between Manchester United and Sunderland on Wednesday.
With the match moving into injury time after Jonny Evans first half header had levelled the tie 2-2 on aggregate, referee Mason warranted a yellow card for wiping out Man United forward Danny Welbeck and Sunderland defender Phil Bardsley in one foul swoop.
The incident occurred as the trio raced up th epitch as the Black Cats tried to launch a counter-attack at the Stadium of Light.
