Pitch Perils: Corner Flag

Assistant Referee Trevor Massey was hit by a corner flag during Birmingham’s 1-0 win over Wigan on Saturday 27 February 2010 in the Premier League.

[Referee Anthony Taylor did not send off Birmingham's Liam Ridgewell for this challenge, which appeared to be excessive]

The incident occurred when Birmingham defender Liam Ridgewell lunged wildly at Wigan player James McCarthy who had the ball by the corner flag. Here is the incident as a series of 8 freeze frames:
