Wolves took on Nottingham Forest yesterday, a fixture that will forever bring back memories of the 1980 League Cup Final in which Wolves shocked the then reigning League and European Cup holders.
On a mid-March day at Wembley, Nottingham Forest predictably threw the kitchen sink at Wolves but somehow could not breach the underdog’s defence. With a back-to-the-walls performance marshalled by veteran captain Emlyn Hughes - his last moment of greatness until his Question of Sport appearance alongside Princess Anne - Wolves somehow managed to keep Forest at bay.
Midway through the second-half Wolves delivered their sucker-punch, as David Needham and Peter Shilton collided as they attempted to clear a long ball, leaving Andy Gray free to take advantage and roll the ball into an empty net.
Forest desperately searched for an equaliser but Wolves were not to be denied.
