City 2-1 West Brom: 1970 League Cup final highlights

On the 53rd anniversary of our first ever League Cup triumph, enjoy the 1970 final highlights all over again...

It was a great day for the Club and particularly the popular Glyn Pardoe.

Having been a vital part of the City side that had won the Division One title in 1968 and the FA Cup 12 months later, Pardoe was again a key part of the side that took on the Baggies on a mudheap of a Wembley surface.

Though Jeff Astle had given Albion an early lead, Mike Doyle’s strike then brought City level after the break before the game went into extra time.

And on 102 minutes, Pardoe proved the man for the big occasion.

Francis Lee chipped a ball to Colin Bell in the box and his back heel fell perfectly for Pardoe.

Glyn looked up, shot and squeezed a drive past the Baggies keeper from the corner of the box to send the City fans wild and secure the Cup.

Enjoy the highlights above.
