The game above I believe. Wasn't this also the game there were allegations about that Leeds had asked Wolves to throw it?
Same outcome tomorrow will do, obviously a higher scoring one would be better but no point being greedy
Never conclusively proved, but several Wolves players were apparently approached by the Leeds manager Don Revie (aka "Don Readies") with bribes. It back-fired big-time. But how the ref missed Bernard Shaw's blatant hand-ball in the box I'll never know (I was there).
Great memories .... we made a habit of influencing results for Brian Clough on the last day of the season. Gave his Derby the title on that day and on or around 14 May 1977 beat Bolton away to allow Clough's Nott'm forest to creep up to the top tier in third place (instead of Bolton) by-the-skin-of-their-teeth.
Perhaps fortunate it happended - Forest seemed to acclimatise quite quickly, winning the title in their 1st season and then the European Cup the following year.
I was 12 , sat on the bus in queen square after the match and dirty Leeds tried to push the bus over !
