Watch the bizarre moment Scunthorpe goalkeeper Matt Gilks injured himself throwing the ball in the Sky Bet League One play-off game against Rotherham.
The 35-year-old gathered the ball in the 58th minute of Saturday's semi-final first leg and tried to launch a quick counter-attack for his team.
He raced to the edge of his area, but as he bowled the ball up-field, his momentum carried him into a 360-degree flip.
He went down clutching his knee and immediately signalled to the bench that he needed treatment.
Gilks was forced off the field three minutes later - and his replacement Rory Watson had only been on for two minutes when he was beaten by Joe Newell and Rotherham went 2-1 up.
The game ended in a 2-2 draw when Cameron McGeehan equalised for Scunthorpe in the 88th minute.
The second leg will be shown live on Sky Sports Football next Wednesday evening.
