Steve Sidwell has dedicated his goal against Everton to his newborn baby Sidwell.
Speaking on the official site, Sidwell explained that his wife had sent him a text message prior to kick off and told him to score to celebrate the new arrival. An offer he simply couldn't resist obviously.
'My wife gave birth to a baby boy last Wednesday and before the game she sent me a text saying 'Score a goal for him.' It was an early one so hopefully he was awake!
'I've always believed that if your life is good outside football, you come to work with a smile on your face.'
A sensible sentiment, Siddy also believes the strike is one of his best ever goals.
'It's up there with the best goals I've scored - in the top five.
'I have a DVD of my goals at home, so that's another one to add to the collection. But it doesn't matter how the ball goes in. I'm just as happy with a tap-in.
'It's a great feeling to catch the ball so sweetly and score so early on but maybe it was a bit too early.
'After that, the home team got some momentum and came back strongly. It was good to score, but even better that we got the victory.
'When Everton scored their second equaliser, you could see the reaction from the boys. We felt the victory had been snatched away from us.
'I took the kick-off with Gabby and asked the ref how long there was to go. He said it was the last minute and I thought we had no chance. But thirty seconds later, the ball was in the net.
'It was great stuff from Youngy. He thoroughly deserved his two goals and could have had a hat-trick.'
