Newcastle United goalkeeper Karl Darlow was involved in a bizarre incident today which saw him make a total mess of a simple catch before making up for it with a wonder-save just seconds later.
The 26-year-old raced onto a loose ball in the box and looked to have gathered with ease before inexplicably spilling it to a Rotherham player in one of the worst possible positions.
However, with a little help from his defenders, Rotherham failed to take advantage and were greeted with Darlow already back in his goal by the time they got a shot away.
Some people say the mark of a great ‘keeper is if you don’t notice them during a game, but with moments like this from the Magpies ace we have to say we heartily disagree.
Newcastle won the game 4-0 this afternoon and sit top of the Championship, so hopefully we’ll be seeing some of this from Darlow in the Premier League next season!
