There was an awkward moment on Twitter when people confused Fulham striker Matt Smith with the Doctor Who actor


Matt Smith played a very important role at Craven Cottage when his first-half header handed Newcastle defeat on their return to the Championship.

Matt Smith, Fulham.

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...

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.

Doctor Who fans - sorry to disappoint. Although we bet Fulham fans are enjoying this glorious moment.
