A Final remembered most for the injury suffered by Colin Tyrer in the
18th Minute, in which a vicious tackle by Keith Hepworth left him
severe injury to his jaw and several teeth lost. Amazingly the savage attack
did not result in a red card from referee Fred Lindop
and the loss of Tyrer proved too much for Wigan, particularly when it came
to penalty goal opportunities.
