Spare a thought for the poor soul who came agonisingly close to being a million quid better off on Saturday afternoon
With seconds remaining of the 3pm kick-offs, one individual was on to claim the £1m jackpot on Sky Sports’ Super 6. Devastatingly, it wasn’t to be thanks to late drama at the DW Stadium.
In the 90th minute, Wigan Athletic – leading 2-1 at the time – conceded a penalty to Nottingham Forest.
Lewis Grabban stepped up to take it, and although the spot kick was turned away by the right hand of Christian Walton, it fell into the path of Hillal Soudani to turn home the equaliser.
Football: a cruel, cruel game.
Imagine being that person watching this all unfold. Imagine how much hatred you’d feel for Iain Dowie, for giving you that millisecond of hope after the penalty was initially saved.
