Number 3: Nick Wright - Watford 2-0 Bolton Wanderers, Division One (now Championship), 1999

Bolton had started the brighter and Eidur Gudjohnsen had seen two good chances slip by. But, in the 39th minute, Watford's Peter Kennedy delivered a corner from the right which was headed away by Andy Todd but only as far as Nick Wright, standing about 10 yards out and just to the left of goal.

The Hornets midfielder adjusted his feet and as the ball dropped he executed a brilliant overhead kick, the ball looping over goalkeeper Steve Banks and two defenders to help secure Watford's return to the top flight.
