FOOTIE fans were united in their sympathy for Alex Scott after seeing her get DRENCHED during her broadcasting duties.

Thedown in the south west was torrid, to say the least.
High winds and buckets of rain battered Home Park Stadium, so much so that Scott ended up being soaked from head to toe.
Scott braved the elements without an umbrella, unlike fellow pundits Jermaine Beckford and Glenn Murray, which meant her dark tartan jacket took a soaking.
Watchers of the match couldn’t help but comment, with one saying: “I bet Alex Scott regretted not having a brolly pitchside before the #PLYLEE game.
“I live a 10-minute walk away from the ground and can confirm it’s absolutely pissing it down.”
Another said: “Hey @AlexScott – tell the lads the pub round the corner has asked for their beer garden parasol back.”
And another said: “Any chance one of those two lads could go over and cover Alex Scott with their umbrella?
“They’re big enough keep all of three of them dry, yet they have one each and remain dry, while Alex is getting soaked.

“Come on lads, be a gentleman @BBCSport.”
One remarked: “Someone get Alex Scott an umbrella, please.
“Glenn Murray you sir are not a gentleman.”
And another chimed in: “@AlexScott bet your freezing in the rain this evening – well done for still smiling.”
Leeds took the lead in the 66th minute through Italy international Wilfried Gnonto.
But the Championship outfit were forced to play extra time thanks to a 78th-minute equaliser from Brendan Galloway.
However, they ran out 4-1 winners to set up a fifth round clash with Villa or Chelsea.
