The unknown man, believed to be a Forest fan, invaded the match, running on to the pitch and pulling his trousers down, before pulling them back up, running some more and then pulling them down again.

He was then caught by stewards.

Former Canaries forward, Daren Huckerby, described the man on Twitter as the 'worst pitch invader ever'.

Jon Rogers captured the incident on video.
