During the half-time interval, the Birmingham City manager and some of his players had a row about their fitness while over in the Manchester City dressing room, Barnes and Revie had a heated exchange of words because Barnes had played defensively in the first half to counter the threat of Peter Murphy, but Revie wanted him to play more upfront.

At the hour mark Manchester City went 2-1 up and sealed the tie just minutes later when Bobby Johnstone got Manchester City’s 3rd

With 17 minutes left Manchester City goalkeeper Trautmann collided with Murphy whose right knee hit forcefully Trautmann neck, who was knocked unconscious, play was stopped for several minutes, but he managed to finish the game, days later is was revealed that he had infact broke a bone in his neck.
