Over five thousand Chesterfield fans travelled to Liverpool for this second round League Cup tie.  For those at home noting the scores on the ticker on the new Sky News service, the presenter did confirm that at 0-3 the goals were the right way around!

TheSpireites were the main stoiry onthe sports pages of all the next day's dailies.  The Sun went with What a Kop Flop Souey! "Liverpool suffered one of the biggest embarrassments in their history last night as they were made to look like Coca-Cola clowns by little Chesterfield."

“We thought there might have been eight goals but we didn’t think we’d get four of them!”  Dave Lancaster.

Chesterfield visited Anfield knowing that in their previous home game Liverpool had scored six in a European tie.  However the Spireites took a three goal lead in front of the Kop against a team featuring David James, Jamie Redknapp, Mark Wright, Ronnie Rosenthal and Jan Molby.  By the end of the match Chesterfield had scored four goals in a cup game against Liverpool at home for the first time that century.

Strikers Dave Lancaster and Steve Norris each scored a brace but every one of the player that night might have made a claim for Man-of-the-Match.  The Sheffield Star awarded their Star player to each of the thirteen!
