The plucky bettor stuck a fiver on a speculative six-fold football accumulator this week at enormous odds of 421/1.

They went for Paris Saint-Germain and Lazio to win their Champions League clashes against Real Sociedad and Bayern Munich.

The punter also chose unfancied Huddersfield and Preston to make the most of their home advantage against Sunderland and Middlesbrough.

Promotion-chasing Ipswich steamrolled Millwall, leaving Plymouth needing to beat Coventry at odds of around 11/5.

Morgan Whittaker gave the hosts the lead in the second half, before Ellis Simms hit back 11 minutes later to level things up.

But our punter didn’t have to wait long for Mikel Miller to regain the hosts’ advantage and set up a tense finish.

For those not using Betfair’s 90 Minute Payout, Coventry’s 96th-minute equaliser would have been a disaster.

But this customer was jumping for joy as Plymouth were leading at 90 minutes – meaning Betfair paid them out as a winner regardless of what happened in injury time.
