99,500 saw Wolverhampton Wanderers lift the trophy for the third time against Midland rivals Leicester City. Leicester had just avoided relegation from the second Division while Wolves had finished 6th in the first division. It only took 12 minutes for Wolverhampton Wanderers to show their superiority and by half time were 2-nil up,

Within two minutes of the start of the second half Leicester pulled a goal back and pressed hard for an equaliser, they did put the ball in the back of the net but it was judged to be offside. Wolverhampton Wanderers then went forward and put the game beyond Leicester by getting their 3rd goal.
