Squirrel one, Alan Knill

SCUNTHORPE manager Alan Knill has revealed he narrowly escaped serious injury following a squirrel-related cycling accident.
Knill was out riding his bike on Monday when he collided with a squirrel.
Unable to dodge the animal, it got caught up in his wheel spokes and sent the manager flying over his handlebars.
He said: “I could have died.
“I saw it run into the road but couldn’t do anything about it and it just hit my wheel and stuck in my wheel and hit my brakes. I went over the top of my bike and landed on my head, shoulder and neck.
“For a minute I thought I might have been in trouble because I landed on my head and then all of a sudden I thought: ‘I’m not, I’m alive!’
“I’m worrying every night about football, but I could have been dead on Monday and it’s so stupid. I’m not and you have to put things into perspective.”
