1974
Epic cup run
Action from our League Cup tie against Aston Villa at the Vic. This was the club's eighth League Cup match of 1974/75, having already beaten Blackburn at the second attempt and Bournemouth at the fourth. Mally Moore's second half equaliser would ensure at least one more match in the competition but Villa proved too strong on their own turf.
