Wolves Vs Manchester City and Notts Forest

Wolverhampton Wanderers v Manchester City - 1974 League Cup Final It was a sight that no Wolves fan will ever forget: John Richards steering the ball, low and hard into the bottom corner of the Manchester City net. It was the goal that finally ended fourteen years of "if onlys", and now Wolves were firmly reinstated on the footballing map. Having started the game as underdogs, against a star-studded Manchester City side, which boasted players such as Denis Law, Rodney Marsh and Francis Lee. Manager Bill McGarry had stressed that his players weren't at Wembley, "just to make up numbers". The atmosphere was pulsating, and the match was on a knife-edge throughout. Kenny Hibbitt and John Richards scored the goals, but it was Gary Pierce who proved to be the outstanding performer of the day, with a string of extraordinary saves. WHAT A DAY THIS WAS! Wolverhampton Wanderers v Nottingham Forest - 1980 League Cup Final Once again in a domestic final, Wolves started as the underdogs, to a Nottingham Forest side, who had previously lifted the European Cup, and were surely going to add the 1980 League Cup to their list of honours under Brian Clough. They had lifted the trophy in the two previous seasons having overcome Liverpool and Southampton. But under the guidance of John Barnwell, Wolves had other ideas, and in a game of few chances, it was Andy Gray's 66th minute goal that proved to be the decisive strike. Forest pressed hard for the equaliser, but the well organised Wolves team proved to be resolute in defence, and almost doubled their lead when George Berry struck the woodwork. Captain Emlyn Hughes lifted the trophy for the first time in his distinguished career, and Wolves joined the small band of teams to win the League Cup on more than one occasion.
