How Wolves Reached Wembley
With 460 teams having fallen by the wayside an audience of 98,954 paid receipts of £49,816 to see the Wembley survivors. Suprise choice Stobart sold a dummy to a Rovers defender and centered, McGrath hooking the ball past his own goalkeeper as Deeley challenged. The event was ruined as a spectacle when Whelan broke his leg to add to the worries of underdogs Blackburn, who had finished 17th in Division One and offered little resistance with 10 men. In the 67th minute Deeley ran the ball in after some good work by Horne, and then Stobart did well again to further justify the omission of Mason when he was involved in a move that finished with Deeley slamming it into the roof of the net to make it 3-0. Flowers and Murray both had goals disallowed yet Wolves never received due credit for their achievement.
