Vine: Tom Huddlestone gets haircut on the pitch after breaking his goal drought against Fulham

Everyone apart from afro lovers was happy that Tom Huddlestone scored for the first time in 54 games against Fulham this afternoon.

The midfielder hadn’t scored a goal since netting for Spurs against Arsenal in 2011 and it wasn’t from a lack of trying this season at least; according to Opta Joe, his effort against Fulham today was his 39th shot of the season so far.

He finally broke that duck with the fourth goal in Hull’s 6-0 spanking of Fulham at the KC Stadium and having promised that he would cut what had become what was quite a thick and heavy afro as soon as he did, he didn’t waste any time when letting one of the Hull backroom staff go at it and get rid of a fairly big chunk immediately afterwards.
