Two opposing players with same name both sent off during an incident in League Two
There was a confusing incident during the latter stages of Swindon's victory over Accrington Stanley in League Two on Saturday.
Indeed, the referee administered a couple of quick-fire red cards that immediately made the live text updates from both clubs difficult to follow.
The fun began in the 84th minute, when Swindon midfielder James Dunne was dismissed for raising an arm to James Dunne, who plays in defence for Accrington.

Accrington's Jimmy Dunne is also off after getting a second yellow
Accrington's Dunne was then shown a second yellow card for his reaction to the Dunne foul, which led to Dunne also following Dunne off down the tunnel.
84' RED CARDS. Both Dunne's depart early. Swindon's Dunne receives a straight red for the raising his arm to Jimmy Dunne, while the Stanley defender gets a second yellow for his reaction. (3-0)— Accrington Stanley (@ASFCofficial) May 5, 2018
Basically, Dunne and Dunne were done and dusted as both sides were left to see out the game with 10 men on the pitch.
Not that it made a massive difference, as Swindon cruised to a 3-0 win over their table-topping guests.
