DAILY VIDEO: Daryl Murphy Stunner Against Wigan

Daryl Murphy - not bad at all.

I was looking at the top scorers in the Championship earlier and there was a familiar yet slightly surprising name there - Daryl Murphy.

I probably shouldn't have been surprised, though. Murphy was an often-maligned figure at Sunderland, due mainly to stuff like being out-jumped by Shaun Wright-Phillips and others players of diminutive stature, but he was still a very good player at Championship level.

His goals were a feature of Roy Keane's side that romped to the title, and when he stepped up into the Premier League he was capable of the odd moment of brilliance.

This was the most brilliant of all. A stunning left-foot raker into the top corner to seal a big three points against Wigan.
