He might not have been named in Martin O'Neill's squad for the upcoming Ireland friendlies but international Shane Duffy still had a pretty good day.

The defender, who has won one international cap, blasted home the winner as Blackburn snatched three points away from home to Brentford this afternoon. The strike was glorious but the reaction from the fans was just as memorable, with Duffy getting swarmed by Blackburn supporters who travelled made the journey.

The win moved Blackburn into 14th in the Championship but they are still 16 points off the playoff spots with eight games to play.
