10 May 2013

You can read the full story in this year's Finals programme.

Number 8: Dave Carroll - Wycombe Wanderers 4-2 Preston North End, Division Three (now League 2), 1994

It was a game that had entertained from first to last, with Preston opening the scoring and then going 2-1 ahead by half time.

Limbs were flagging by the 72nd minute but, from somewhere, Dave Carroll found the inspiration to put the seal on Wycombe's 4-2 win. Picking up the ball just inside his own half the winger cut infield from the right as defenders backed off.

Arriving at the 18-yard line he shaped as if to shoot with his left before switching back onto his right foot to climax a 50-yard jinking run with a low shot in off the post. .
