Video: Puddle stops certain goal

We've all had a dampener that threatens to ruin the day - but here's a real sickener that made striker Danny Nardiello look to the skies in disbelief.

We've all had a dampener that threatens to ruin the day!

But here's a real sickener that made striker Danny Nardiello look to the skies in disbelief.

Heavy rain fell throughout Bury's Divison 2 home game against Notts County last weekend … and a puddle intervened when the Lancashire striker fired in a shot that beat keeper Kasper Schmeichel.

The ball would have hit the net on any other day - but Schmeichel (whose dad Peter was the inspiration for the name of a great dane doggy star in Coronation Street) was able to gleefully retrieve the ball from the water!

Poor Danny - it would have been his second goal of the day. The match ended 3-3.
