The referee in Port Vale vs Portsmouth had to run off the pitch to avoid a pitch invader

Referee Craig Hicks was forced to run away from the pitch invader who appeared to be charging directly at him.

Hicks was protected by members of staff from the sidelines after the pitch invader was stopped.

The incident occurred just moments after Portsmouth had bagged a controversial penalty in the 88th minute to win the game 1-0.

Colby Bishop dispatched the spot kick which seems to have led to the unbelievable moment.

Fans watching on couldn’t believe what they were witnessing with many taking to social media.

One wrote: “Imagine trying to attack the referee for making the correct decision.”

While another added: “It all went a bit Benny Hill for a minute there.”
