- Steve Mardenborough scored Wolves' winner as he remembers fondly: "'I was training with the reserves a couple of days before and I was called into the first-team squad. Mel Eves had tweaked his knee. The decision to play me taken at the last minute.
I can remember walking on to the pitch before kick-off and thinking: "This is great." Then I can hear our assistant boss, Jim Barron, saying to me: "If Danny Crainie gets a cross in, I want to see you on the end of it." I think it was Phil Neal that he beat and he swung the ball over. I remember Bruce Grobbelaar coming for it, stopping and then trying to get back. It hit me half on the head and half on the shoulder. It looped over him and into the net. I've scored better, but none have been as memorable. Graeme Souness and Craig Johnson both shook my hand and congratulated me at the final whistle.'"
