Number 6: David Eyres - Burnley 2-1 Stockport County, Division Two (now League 1), 1994

David Eyres and the men from Turf Moor found themselves behind after just two minutes of this Final but a wonder goal from the left-winger changed all that and put Burnley on the way to victory.

Collecting a pass just outside the penalty area, Eyres was quickly alive to the possibilities, transferring the ball from his left to his right foot to outwit the first defender. Evading another Stockport player, he was now inside the penalty area and moving at full speed. After side-stepping defender number three, Eyres had room to dispatch a low shot into the net.
