"I heard the defender say he was going to stay in the middle of the goal with the two others. I said to Willy before – you knew Baz was going to shoot from there – you go across the front and if it's short you get a nick on it, I'll go round the back, if it goes long or wide I can hopefully be there to put it in. Fortunately I was. It was a long time coming – the ball seemed to be floating for a long time!"

Next up for Bennett and co is a home game against Brentford tonight, and a win could see them move 12 points clear at the Championship's summit.
