Yer Da ran onto the pitch during Coventry City v Forest Green Rovers

Forty-two seconds.

The time it took for a fan to get on to the pitch in the 97th minute, while play was still running, and berate several Coventry players.

The Sky Blues were losing to Forest Green Rovers when someone hopped the advertising hoards at the Ricoh Arena.

Coventry, who were competing in the Championship five years ago, have slipped down to League Two, where they are currently eighth.

The 1-0 loss against Forest Green Rovers leaves Mark Robins’ side without a win in three and without a goal in 351 minutes.

But that shouldn’t excuse a fan confronting the players.

Someone come and pick Your Da up

After initially directing his tirade at defender Jack Grimmer he then moved on to Marc McNulty.

Coventry captain Michael Doyle came over to diffuse the situation and physically remove him from the pitch.

But the worrying thing was the fact he was allowed to walk back off the pitch unassisted, with security nowhere to be seen.

We’re all for passion, but this was overstepping the mark. Someone come and pick Yer Da up.
