With nothing to play for in the league and both sides depleted from International call ups, Lee and Bell missing for the Blues, this was the archetypal end of season drab affair, watched by City’s smallest league crowd of the season
It was left to Neil Young to decide the match with less than 20 minutes left, playing a one-two with Mike Summerbee on the edge of the box, and shooting home from 12 yards.
