- Ian St. John received a kick in the face in the early minutes off this match and was off the field of play for about 17 minutes as a result. He required stitches to a cut on his jaw but was able to return despite being quite dazed by the incident. He had, however, recovered in time to start the next match at Sunderland two days later (on Easter Monday).
