WATCH: Derby wonder goal trumps anything that happened in the Bernabeu on Tuesday night

Tuesday night wasn't just a Champions League night

As much as events in Dortmund and - more so - Madrid might dominate the headlines, we can safely say that nothing quite compares to the goal scored by Derby County's Mason Bennett in the Championship game with Wigan Athletic.

The Rams had fallen behind to Gavin Massey's first-half opener at Pride Park, and had to wait until the final half an hour of the game before drawing level. The equaliser, though, was worth the wait.

A ball played out wide to the left wing by Tom Huddlestone, Scott Malone sent a cross into the Wigan penalty area. The cross slightly behind Bennett, the 22-year-old turned and hooked an improvised volley beyond Jamie Jones in the Latics goal with his left foot.

It was an incredible finish; something you'd expect from Zlatan Ibrahimovic...


See? Not bad, eh?

Having equalised, Frank Lampard's side then scored a winner through Malone with 12 minutes to go.

The 2-1 win leaves them seventh in the Championship, just outside the play-off positions. They return to action on Saturdat afternoon, when they host Sheffield Wednesday at Pride Park.
