Sky Bet customer bags over quarter of a million on Tuesday's games

One lucky Sky Bet punter scooped over £256,000 on a unique football accumulator on Tuesday night, thanks to a stoppage time penalty.

David Lopez's 97th minute spot-kick for Brighton against Blackburn completed the 1,027/1 shot as both teams scored (8/11), one quarter of an ambitious four-fold bet.

The punter, a 27-year-old from South London, also predicted three correct scores as Aston Villa beat Bradford 2-1 (15/2), Notts County defeated Oldham 1-0 (6/1) and Aldershot lost 2-1 at home to Northampton (9/1).

Just before Christmas, the same customer raked in a £172,000 progressive off a £25 stake on Deal or No Deal casino slot game on Sky Vegas.

Sky Bet's Dale Tempest said: "It's a truly remarkable coupon - at times like this you can only take your hat off to the punter.

"Correct scores are one of the trickiest markets even as a single, so the fact that he was spot-on with three on the one slip is hugely impressive, and the last-gasp penalty at Ewood Park was the icing on a very sizable cake."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
