WATCH: Daniel Lafferty scores with wonderful first-time shot

Those who remember Daniel Lafferty at Derry City will recall that the defender had a keen eye for goal.

Tearing down the left flank on the overlap, the former Celtic man would send inviting crosses into the box and chip in with goals of his own.

Lafferty finished the 2011 season with seven goals from left back before moving across the Irish Sea to join Burnley.

The Northern Ireland international is now playing for League One contenders Sheffield United and he gave supporters a reminder of his shooting ability on Saturday with sensational goal against Rochdale.


With 11 minutes on the clock, the Derry native was first to react to a loose ball at the edge of the area, letting fly with his left foot to double his side’s lead at the Crown Oil Arena – notching his first goal of the season.

Unfortunately for Lafferty, Sheffield United could not hold onto their lead and they allowed Rochdale back into the game, which finished 3-3.

But no one can take his lovely goal away from him. Have a look in the video above!
