On this Day – Saturday 9th September 1989

Two late goals cost Saints victory as they were pegged back to 4-4 in a remarkable match at Norwich City. Paul Rideout’s header have Chris Nicholl’s men and early lead which was restored by Rod Wallace who then made it 3-1. Tim Sherwood cut the gap but Rideout’s second made it 4-2 before Robert Rosario netted twice more to complete a hat-trick in a thrilling encounter for neutrals.
