There was a freak incident in the Championship on Saturday, as Sheffield Wednesday drew 1-1 with Hull.

Arsenal loanee Chuba Akpom injured a referee Keith Stroud after coming off the bench for the Tigers.

The 20-year-old forward accidentally barged into Keith Stroud’s back in an attempt to reach a loose ball, and the ref was ultimately so badly injured he needed to be replaced with the fourth official.

Akpom made a massive difference for his side just seconds after coming on, instigating Abel Hernandez’ equaliser after Fernando Forestieri opened the scoring for Sheffield Wednesday.

Watch the footage below.
