Chesterfield keeper ATTACKED by fan after late Oldham equaliser leads to fans fighting on pitch in sickening scenes | The Sun

CHAOS ensued in the dying moments of Chesterfield's clash with Oldham when their keeper was ATTACKED by a fan.

The Latics bagged a point in the dying embers of their National League clash – which ended 1-1 – thanks to a 91st-minute equaliser from James Norwood.

Norwood's strike sparked pandemonium in the away end – with scores of Oldham fans rushing onto the pitch to celebrate with the players.

But amid the pitch invasion, one idiot supporter decided to attack Chesterfield keeper Harry Tyrer.

Tyrer was sent crashing to the ground by the thug – who ran into and pushed him – as he protested Norwood's equaliser.

Thankfully, the yob – who was flanked by several other jubilant Latics fans – opted not to further attack Tyrer.

Disgusted footie fans quickly commented on the viral incident, with one saying: "Should be banned."

Another said: "Oldham embarrassed themselves badly there honestly."

And another said: "He needs a ban."

One remarked: "Ban the fan. Issue condemnation and an apology to Chesterfield and Tyrer.

"But in that apology note that one of their players allegedly put one of our players in hospital last season and we are still to receive any condemnation about it.

Another chimed in: "Need to have stadium bans followed by points deductions.

"Otherwise this is going to keep happening up and down the pyramid. Zero tolerance.

Several Chesterfield fans reacted furiously to the provocation by the invading Oldham fans, with scores rushing to pitchside to vent their fury.

And one supporter even stormed the pitch and started trading PUNCHES with one of the travelling Latics fans.

Oldham were quick to issue a statement condemning the sickening incident.

It read: "Oldham Athletic condemns any encroachment onto the field of play and the use of pyrotechnics.

"As a club, we pride ourselves on the passion of our supporters but the behaviour of everyone representing our club must remain lawful at all times.

"We will co-operate fully with all investigations made.

Norwood's late strike ruined Chesterfield's perfect start to the season.
