Beattie who bagged his 20th goal of the season and his 102nd league goal of his career was given praise from gaffer Kevin Blackwell.

Blackwell said:"That was world class, terrific technique, and if it had been scored by Ronaldo it would be talked about for days and shown on TV all over the world.

"The lads out there said that it was inch perfect right in the top corner and no goalkeeper in the world would have got it. James practices those in training and it paid off tonight."

Beattie who scored his 2nd hat trick of his career on Saturday against Leicester received more comments from his boss about his performance as well.

"His whole performance was quality, not just his goal but the way he led the line and held the ball up - im just glad we have him here."
