Four years on from Stiliyan Petrov embarrassing Derby County goalkeeper Roy Carroll, Cardiff City's Mark Hudson did it to the Rams' Frank Fielding.

The ex-Crystal Palace defender caught out the England Under-21 goalkeeper unawares when he booted the ball from 60 yards into the back of the net.

Fielding comically followed the net into the goal for the Bluebirds' second in a 2-0 win.
