Glentoran's John McGuigan woefully skies last-minute penalty

With the score 0-0 heading into stoppage time at The Oval on Saturday, Glentoran were awarded a penalty following some sloppy defending by visiting Coleraine.

Attacking midfielder McGuigan manfully stepped up to take the spot-kick – but slipped during his run-up and hacked a shot off the bar.

Incident and miss at 5:40

Coleraine players and fans celebrated like they'd just scored, as the result lifted them back to the top of the league. Glentoran remain fifth in the 12-team league, seven points off the leaders after eight games. 

Oh, John.
