Did Ruiz do it on purpose

It's fair to say Fulham enjoyed their fair share of luck as they scraped into the third round of the Capital One Cup after seeing off Burton on penalties on Tuesday night.

The Premier League outfit had to rely on a Hugo Rodallega leveller in the 118th minute to take their League Two hosts to spot-kicks and could easily have lost the shoot-out had Bryan Ruiz's penalty not rebounded into the net off the backside of Burton keeper Dean Lyness.

The Cottagers went on to steal the shoot-out 5-4, and probably knew it was going to be their night when Ruiz's effort struck the bottom of the post, rolled across the goal-line and eventually found the back of the net after rebounding of the unfortunate Lyness's posterior.
