Though not only did Cairney secure an impressive landmark for Fulham, he also guaranteed one fan a staggering £6,020.00 from a £20 bet on them to reach it.
After the Cottagers passed the 100 mark, SkyBet took to Twitter to share details of the incredible bet, which was placed at odds of 300/1.
Cairney’s opener ensured the customer got over the line with almost a game-and-a-half to spare, sealing a phenomenal windfall.
They also have Aleksandar Mitrovic to thank for the betting triumph, as the Serbia striker’s double on the night took his league tally to a remarkable 43 goals.

Mitrovic has been in devastating form for Fulham this season, helping them maintain a solid grip on top spot in the Championship for several months.
Kenny Tete, Fabio Carvalho, Bobby Reid and Jean Michael Seri also got on the scoresheet in their seven-goal victory on Monday.
After wrapping up the title Fulham then got their celebrations underway by lifting the Championship trophy, and there’s a very good chance the winning punter would have been enjoying his own party.
The west London club have now bagged 106 league goals this season, meaning they are just two shy of Manchester City’s second-tier record from the 2001/02 campaign.
In their last outing they go away to promotion-hunting Sheffield United, who need a victory to confirm their place in the playofffs.
