The weekend witnessed plenty of goals, drama and a fair amount of mediocre football at times, but it also gave us two prime examples of how to miss with a header from point-blank range.

Step forward Kilmarnock’s Paul Heffernan and Bolton’s Dedryck Boyata. While the latter’s miss, although quite appalling, didn’t have any bearing on the Trotters’ comfortable 3-1 win against Wigan, Heffernan could have stopped Celtic’s comeback (from 3-0 down) and given Killie a fantastic victory over the Glasgow giants. However, it was not to be and the game ended 3-3.

But which miss is worse? You decide!

First up, Paul Heffernan…


Second, Dedryck Boyata…
