VIDEO: Sprinklers pop up with B’mouth v Wolves still playing – Ref’s dubious decisions gets criticised

An entertaining encounter between AFC Bournemouth and Wolves saw a 1-1 draw play out, however stoppage time bizarrely saw sprinklers from inside the pitch pop up.

With minutes left on the clock, the sprinklers that usually water the ground before and after the game, ended up soaking the players who were still out on the field.

Watch the video and photo of when the amusing moment happened below…

The game itself saw three ‘dubious’ penalties given, two of them ended up in the net.

Wolves’ Raul Jimenez did put his side 1-0 up, but it was ruled out and the referee brought play back as Jota was adjudged to have fouled in the build-up.

The first penalty was given after just 13 minutes, Joshua King scoring from the spot after he went down easily following Joao Moutinho’s challenge.

Another was given but this time to Wolves in the 83rd minute when Adam Smith brought down Matt Doherty, the penalty then converted by Raul Jimenez.

In the same minute, referee Roger East handed the Cherries a second penalty, a chance for the hosts to win it, King again stepped up but this time hit the post.

Another decision in the game saw East keep Lerma on the pitch, only giving him a yellow for an elbow on Moutinho, who was given extensive treatment whilst being booed by Bournemouth fans before he played on with blood in his mouth.


Following the full time whistle, both Bournemouth and Wolves fans took to give their opinion on the game, reply to the club’s result tweets, the referee got slammed and the sprinklers produced a laugh – check what they are saying on the next page.
