Paul Ince's wonderful reaction to his son Tom's goal against Stoke got a great reaction from watching fans on Boxing Day.

The 10th-minute strike gave the 25-year-old his first goal of the season and his first for Huddersfield since joining from Derby County in the summer.

Not that Ince hasn't tried to score - or found himself without the opportunity to.

The goal ended Ince's run as the Premier League player with the most shots without scoring; A total of 45 attempts on goal were needed to notch up his first of the season.

It isn't, however, the number-22's first ever top-flight goal but his second - his first coming, strangely enough, with his first ever shot in the division when on loan at Crystal Palace in 2014.

The goal that would eventually win Huddersfield a point against Stoke was far harder to earn though, and the relief was plain to see on both father and son.

While Tom was celebrating at the John Smith's Stadium, his father Paul was enjoying the goal just as much in the BT Sport studio.

The former Manchester United and Inter Milan midfielder interrupted proceedings on BT Sport Score to show his delight at his son's achievement - something that caught the attention of viewers.

It'll certainly be interesting to see if a player who once had enough promise to catch the attention of Inter Milan can finally kick on and make a name for himself in the Premier League.

Tom Ince began his career at his dad's former club Liverpool before deciding he needed to leave for first-team football. He found that at Blackpool, winning the Championship's Young Player of the Year award in 2012-13.

His ability found him suitors both abroad and in the Premier League, infamously deciding against accepting an offer from Inter in order to join Hull City.

The reasoning was sound - he rightly saw that Inter were in a transitional stage and decided that it wasn't the place to be for a young English player - but the gamble has kept the former England U-21 International from testing himself at an elite club, instead leaving the winger to make his name in the Championship with Derby County.

But now it seems that Tom Ince is finally getting his chance in top-flight football, featuring in all 19 games for Huddersfield and finally scoring his first goal. No wonder Dad's so pleased.
