Own goals galore! Duffy endures nightmare start to Championship season


It's fair to say Shane Duffy has had a nightmare start to the new Championship season...

The defender was on cloud nine after impressing for Republic of Ireland at Euro 2016 but has quickly become the butt of the jokes in England's second tier.

Blackburn Rovers man Duffy is currently the joint-top goalscorer in the Championship.. but the only problem is he has buried them all in the wrong net!

Duffy scored an own goal against Wigan Athletic on Saturday before notching two more against Cardiff City just three days later.

And just when you thought matters couldn't get worse for Duffy - who rejected a new contract at Blackburn in between the two matches - he received his marching orders against Cardiff as well.

Blackburn sit bottom of the Championship table after three games, without a point and a minus seven goal difference to boot.
