Pen Pic

Experienced wide-man Tommy Smith started out with Watford where 33 goals in 149 appearances saw him emerge as a talented prospect in English football.

Sunderland offered him a deal in their bid to be promoted from the Championship after deals to Charlton Athletic and West Ham United broke down.

His season at the Stadium of Light was moments away from success as the Black Cats lost out to Crystal Palace on penalties in the playoffs.

His contract expired in the north-east and he moved to Derby in the close season, where in two seasons he first helped Derby into the playoffs before a dip in the Rams' form saw them finish narrowly outside the relegation places.

New manager Billy Davies opted to shed the wide-man who had impressed for Derby, with Premier League Watford tempting the wide-man with a move back to Vicarage Road.

Watford were relegated at the first attempt and nearly bounced back only for the eventually promoted Hull City to trounce them in the playoffs.

A summer move to Portsmouth saw him attempt to keep Paul Hart's men in the top flight, but a bottom-placed finish saw him seeking alternative options owing to the plight of the south-coast club.

He thought a deadline day deal to QPR was done before Rangers were informed they would have to take him on emergency loan until January after missing the deadline - they eventually made the deal permanent in January 2011.

His impact was immediate, he scored goals to fire Rangers into the promotion fray before scoring the clincher against his former club Watford to secure promotion.

He scored QPR's first goal in the Premier League since 1996 when scoring the winner against Everton and another crucial goal came in Mark Hughes' first home league game with a stunner against Wigan Athletic.

Smith however did not join the squad for their pre-season tour of the far east prior to the 2012-13 campaign. He departed for Cardiff City prior to the start of the campaign.
