Apologies if this has already been posted, but I've just noticed the whole of this match has been posted on You Tube. Seems like yesterday to me !

I was there that day, and loved it.
The very next day I began a new chapter in my work career, I went on Agency at the Lister Hospital in Stevenage, right after the match, without waiting for the First Division game, I picked up my car, which was parked as far away as the old Job Centre on Trafford Road, and drove to Stevenage, passing over Coventry as they celebrated their FA Cup win the previous day. I never lived in Salford from then on, not really.
I still had post delivered to my parents house, & I went home regularly, but after Stevenage in was Derby City Hospital, followed by East Glamorgan General Hospital near Pontypridd, then Mount Vernon where met my first wife, settled in Uxbridge, and that was that. Occasional visits were all I can/could make from 1990
By the way, has anyone linked this on the Hunslet board, I'm sure, despite the score, some of them might like to see it?
Yes they have linked it thankyou.
I was at this game , yet it does not seem that long ago, only 26 years, as I agree with Gower's magic hand about that, and that's frightening.
A great day out, but not the result for us. I remember Les Holiday playing in this game for you, but really thought Danny Wilson played for you in this game. Cannot believe he did not play ? was he injured ?
my memory of that day was obviously wrong, having said that, to me he was your greatest player , I have seen playing against us in your side. Les Holiday was a class act too for you.
Our greatest player in my opinion Graham King , had his worse game in a Hunslet shirt against you in this game. You deserved the win that day.
