VIDEO: Ref goes down injured so player uses magic spray to outline him

Jeff Stelling’s beloved Hartlepool United were in action on Tuesday, and the team fared a lot better than the ref did.

The League Two side won 2-0 against Oxford to give themselves an excellent chance of avoiding relegation this season.

Unfortunately referee Pat Miller had a less successful night, first managing to injure himself without appearing to make contact with any player.

Regardless of what caused the problem, he ended up lying on the field and looked to be in considerable pain.

To add insult to injury, Hartlepool defender Scott Harrison decided to have some fun with the vanishing spray and started drawing an outline around the official.

We don't know if Harrison has been watching too much CSI, but someone needs to tell him a body outline isn't necessary in cases of minor on-field injury.
