Wolves star slide-tackles opposition manager

Published Add your comment

Oldham manager Lee Johnson endured an eventful night last night as his side were beaten 2-0 by title favourites Wolves. 

On the night, Johnson found himself gunned down both by Wolves striker Leigh Griffiths who scored the second goal, but also by Wolves midfielder James Henry. 

Henry scored the opener on the night, but it was during the first half where the former Millwall striker really grabbed the limelight. 

The surface at Molineux had been slippery all night, and the inevitable happened as 6" 1" Henry charged towards the touchline to save a wayward pass. In the process Henry wiped out young manager Johnson who had no time to react to the crunching tackle.

Luckily, there was no malicious intent and after dusting himself down Johnson returned to his feet to unfortunately watch his team lose 2-0. 

Watch the madness unfold above!
