Was looking at the Wikipedia entries for Cox & Fortune.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simon_Cox_(footballer,_born_1987)

Including his 4 goals for Ireland, Cox's goal on Saturday appears to have been his 104th career goal. Add up the stats at the bottom of his Wiki page (do it manually, don't believe the sub-totaling....). But it was his 100th domestic goal if the stats on there are to be believed.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marc-Antoine_Fortuné

Now look at the Wiki page for Fortune. Including all of his goals for various teams in various French leagues, plus those in the Netherlands and for Celtic, WBA, etc etc it does seem as if he was on 98 goals before joining SUFC. One vs the O's in the Nonsense Cup plus his first league goal on Saturday seems to take him to 100 exactly.

I hope Chris Phillips is reading this - I am doing his journalistic work for him.....

I would be pretty certain that this would be a unique event, i.e. two strikers both scoring their 100th domestic goals for the same club in the same match.

Would be grateful if someone could verify my maths and then ensure SUFC are advised as all the hype was for Cox because it was a 93rd minute winner but in reality it took both goals to win the match.
