Punters have been betting on Doncaster boy band sensation Louis Tomlinson to get injured during his Doncaster Rovers debut next week.

The Bessacarr One Direction star is due to pull on the red and white hoops in a reserve game against Rotherham United at the Keepmoat Stadium on Wednesday night.

But punters have been flocking to pile money on the star leaving the pitch injured - with some bookies offering odds as generous as 40-1 in the match ending in disaster for the singer.

It comes after the star was forced to cancel his appearance in an earlier Rovers’ reserve fixture against Scunthorpe United after he was injured in a tackle by Aston Villa ace Gabriel Agbonlahor at a charity game in Celtic last autumn.

The boy band hunk was forced to hobble off the pitch following the challenge and ended up vomiting in the full glare of the cameras.

Bookmakers are offering a string of bets for the game which will kick off at 7pm

He is 16-1 to score first and 9-2 to score during the game.

Other offers include 3-1 he will remove his shirt after scoring a goal, 16-1 on him bagging a hat-trick, 66-1 on getting sent off and 12-1 to score an own goal.

More obscure bets included being sick on the pitch (75-1), Simon Cowell presenting him with the man of the match award (10-1), playing in a Premier League game before the end of 2015 at 1000-1 and 5000-1 on playing in the 2018 World Cup.
