With seven goals being scored at last years cup final (1953), the 100,00 crowd watched another high scoring encounter,.

A failed clearance by a Preston defender allowed WBA to open the scoring after 21 minutes, but their lead was not to last long as Preston equalised a minute later, with Morrison heading the goal from close range. The score remained the same until half-time.

After 51 minutes, Wayman of Preston received the ball in what some say as being in an offside position, but the ref allowed play to continue and Wayman slotted the ball home for Preston to take the lead. The lead lasted 12 minutes when after a collision in the penalty area, the ref awarded a penalty to WBA, up stepped Allen to put the ball beyond the goalie to score his and WBA second goal of the afternoon.

With West Bromwich Albion putting on the pressure during the remaining time on the clock, managed with 3 minutes left to squeeze the ball home to a memorable 3-2 victory.
