HendoStrandedHendo On this day 15 years ago was probably the first time I really thought, "yeah, we could get promoted here"
2 things always remember about that game. Kenny stopping a certain own goal outside his area with his hand and just getting a yellow but the ref evening it up by turning down a Sheff Utd penalty late on when Harper kicked Gillespie 10ft in the air.
Yep. 2 really shocking decisions.
My teaching at school was a Sheffield United fan. He was furious about the penalty decision, but also adamant that the yellow card for Kenny was the right decision. No idea what game he was watching. Apparently the rules only said red for stopping a shot, but Convey was ahead of the defender and was going to score.
Overall I remember it being a tight game and you could argue we were fortunate to win. The win away at Ipswich when we went top was when I knew we'd take some stopping.
