Town-Everton FA Cup Quarter-Final Classics Time Switch
Sunday, 22nd Mar 2020 11:46

Town’s FA Cup 1985 tie against Everton at Goodison Park will be one of the featured games on FA Cup Quarter-Final Classics: Part Two which is being screened on BBC One at the earlier than initially set time of 3.10pm this afternoon to replace the scheduled live match.

The BBC was set to show the Norwich-Manchester United quarter-final tie but with all football off until April 30th at the earliest, they are instead showing highlights of classic fixtures from the past.

Ten-man Town secured a 2-2 draw at Goodison - Kevin Wilson and Romeo Zondervan finding the net and Steve McCall being shown a red card - but were beaten 1-0 in the replay at Portman Road. The rerun also include a pre-match interview with Terry Butcher.

Derby County against Sheffield Wednesday from 1993 and Manchester United versus Portsmouth from 2008 are also featured on the same programme as the Blues’ tie against the Toffeemen, who were the trophy holders and on their way to the First Division title, while Town were successfully battling relegation. The programme is already available on iPlayer here.

I remember being there for the replay, a devastated kid when the penalty was given against Osman for hand ball.

McCall's sending off was a joke given the interpretation of the rules at the time - a classic "home decision", influenced by a baying crowd. We also suffered from a handball which would be given now but was harsh at the time. Town's last chance to win a major trophy - sad that this was 35 years ago!

@Radlett blue: Didn't we get to the quarter-finals again in 1993?
