As glory nights at Hillsborough go there haven't been many to rival this. #OnThsDay in 1991 it was PROMOTION for #swfc as 2 goals from @hirstyd & one from TF saw a 3-1 win vs @BristolCity Att 31,706 Good to see @SheffieldStar were asking inane questions even back then #UTO

I was in the RAF at the time. I remember listening to the live commentary on Radio 5 in the barracks whilst ironing my kit. Great memories.

It was a nervy evening at first. As I recall a point would have made it unlikely that Notts C - yes, Notts C - would catch us because of the GD. A win sealed it. A loss and we had a tricky game at already-promoted Oldham - yes, Oldham.

 

For all that we look back on that team and season with such fondness, we quite frequently produced insipid home performances where we never got going, or only played one half. We didn't lose many (just one?) but we drew far more than we should have done. 

 

But that night we were superb. The 15 minutes after half time with waves of attack sweeping down towards the Kop are a memory for a lifetime
