Charlton’s Ryan Inniss was sent off against AFC Wimbledon on Tuesday night for one of the worst tackles you’re ever likely to see.
Inniss has been injured for large parts of this season but came off the bench at Plough Lane in the 49th-minute with the scores still at 0-0.
But the defender lasted just seven minutes before he was sent off for an awful tackle on George Marsh.
Inniss had possession in defence and looked to bring the ball out. However, he took a horribly heavy touch and looked to make amends with a lunging tackle. It resulted in a shocking challenge on Marsh that sent the AFC Wimbledon midfielder flying.
Neil Hair couldn’t brandish the red card quick enough as AFC Wimbledon protested the awful tackle.

The tackle is starting to gain traction on social media with a lot of fans disgusted by Inniss.
His manager was not happy
But it’s not just fans that weren’t impressed with Inniss. His manager, Johnnie Jackson, was also “very disappointed.”
“It’s silly, it’s naive, it’s reckless, it’s a red card. I can’t defend that one. I’m very disappointed with that,” Jackson said after the match.
Meanwhile AFC Wimbledon boss, Mark Bowen, thought the red card was an easy decision for the referee.
“To be fair, it’s not a talking point,” Bowen said.
“Anybody who saw it knows that he is two feet off the ground, he charges through, and he actually connects with our player. Where is the argument against it? There is no point talking about it – it’s a straight red card.”
It certainly was.
The match finished 1-1 with AFC Wimbledon grabbing a late equaliser through Zach Robinson. With five matches remaining, the Dons are now four points from safety as they look to remain in League One next season.
