Pardoe wins the cup! 1970 League Cup final highlights

One of Glyn Pardoe’s finest City moments came at Wembley in 1970 when Glyn’s extra time winner secured a dramatic 2-1 League Cup final win over West Brom.

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.
