A cork punter had Charlton to thank after their late, late winner on Saturday brought in an accumulator worth more than €60,000.
The Boylesports punter picked the Championship strugglers on a €3 coupon along with West Ham, Millwall, Birmingham, Bolton, Wigan, Burnley, Derby, Sheffield Wednesday and Leicester.
It looked set to be a case of so near yet so far with only eight of the teams winning with just five minutes to play.
Chris Martin’s goal gave Derby a 1-0 win at home to Bournemouth and brought the 20,000/1 bet an agonising step closer.
And — with nails well and truly bitten — the remarkable coup came off when Johnnie Jackson headed home Charlton’s winner in stoppage time against promotion-chasing QPR.
