Matt Smith played a very important role at Craven Cottage when his first-half header handed Newcastle defeat on their return to the Championship.
The 26-year-old Fulham striker led his team to victory with a 1-0 win when he exposed poor marking from a corner as Rafael Benitez's side found the going tough in a high-tempo encounter.
Unfortunately his moment of glory went unrecognised (for a brief moment) on Twitter when people thought of another man with the same name instead...

Saw Matt Smith trending & got excited. Checked the trend & realized it's the soccer one, not the Doctor Who one. Got bored & wandered off.

Yup, that's right, we are talking about the other Matt Smith, the former Doctor Who with a penchant for smart suits and bow ties.

"Matt Smith" trending on Twitter grabbed my attention...until I discovered it wasn't "The Doctor" Matt Smith. @DoctorWho_BBCA

I'm probably not the only one who thought the Matt Smith trending was Dr Who related until clicking on it ...
