DTotD: Kilmarnock players tackle each other in build-up to epic miss

St Johnstone recorded their fifth consecutive league win on Saturday with a 2-1 home win over Kilmarnock. Nigel Hasselbaink scored the winner in the 90th minute, but not before committing one of the worst open goal misses of the season.

While the epic miss gives off-the-scale readings on the Schadenfreude-o-meter, eagle-eyed DTotD fans will have spotted the true highlight this clip: the Kilmarnock players who tackle each other during Hasselbaink's initial through-ball.

On the occasions when a striker is able to put the ball into an open goal, thats the kind of defending that gets you in trouble.

This has been the Dirty Tackle of the Day: a chronicling of unfortunate events.
