- Ronnie Moran scored a dramatic winner from the penalty spot: "In those days, goalkeepers could take as many steps as they wanted and forwards could stand in front of them when the goal kick was made. Ian St John did just that and goalkeeper Adam Blacklaw's clearance struck him and rebounded in Ian's favour. He ran past the keeper and was going to push the ball into an empty net when he was brought down.

I never looked at opposing keepers. I would plant the ball on the spot, aim to the keeper's right, strike with the outside of my left foot and find some swerve. On that occasion, I had some power in the shot, but it was only a yard wide of their keeper. He went down on one knee and pushed out an arm in the other direction. The goal was at the Kop end and I hadn't realised how close we were to the final whistle. Seconds later, it was all over."
