Irwin took his first United spotkick in regulation time against Southampton in May 1995 and his final effort was at Anderlecht in October 2000.

Fernandes has netted 19 times in 34 appearances for United and 12 of them have come from 12 yards since he assumed the spotkick responsibility against Watford in February.
