Barrow’s James Cotterill fractures the jaw of Bristol Rovers’ Shaun Rigg

Ouch! This video shows TV footage of Barrow defender James Cotterill allegedly (I can’t really see any legal challenge being mounted against this evidence, but we’ll cover our backs anyway!) punching Bristol Rovers striker Sean Rigg in Saturday’s FA Cup clash. Rigg’s jaw was fractured in two places in the incident. Cue pundits with choruses of "no place for it in football" and very little genuine action.

UPDATE: Rigg has just announced that he wants to press charges against Cotterill.
