Top 10: Goalscoring goalkeepers

Any keeper in the 2003/04 season

There must have been something in the water six years ago -“ keepers couldn't stop scoring. Sort of.

Sunderland's Mart Poom bagged the first in September 2003 at the end of a Division One game between Sunderland and his former side Derby, heading in an equaliser with seconds to spare.

Four days later Leeds goalkeeper Paul Robinson scored a stunning last-minute header against Swindon Town in the Carling Cup. (He would later bag a famous 80-odd-yard free-kick for Spurs that bounced over the head of Watford's Ben Foster).

Not to be outdone, Blackburn's Brad Friedel grabbed a goal in a game at Charlton. With the match nearing injury time, the big American went up for a corner and duly equalised -“ alhough a spectacular goal from Claus Jensen moments later somewhat stole Big Brad'™s thunder.
