- Ablett was dismissed for two bookable offences: a crude hack from behind on Blackmore at the start of the game, followed by a trip on Kanchelskis which almost sent the Soviet winger into orbit just past the hour.
- Mark Hughes of Manchester United was also sent off for tangling with Burrows in one of the numerous hefty collisions that littered the game and thrusting his head towards his opponent.
