Footballers get a lot of bad press but Ipswich defender Tyrone Mings is being hailed left, right and centre for his act of generosity on Saturday.
He had been wished good luck before the game by a supporter on Twitter, who said he wasn't able to make it because he was 'skint'.
Mings asked him if he could get to the game and upon receiving a positive response, told the fan that he was setting aside two tickets for him.

Although Mings, 19, was just an unused substitute for the game, the fan will have enjoyed his day out as Ipswich beat Bolton 1-0.
Carlos Edwards scored his first goal in two years to boost the club's bid to beat the npower Championship drop and dent Bolton's play-off charge.
The veteran winger struck with just two minutes to go as Bolton's five-match winning streak shuddered to a halt.
