Matchday Memories: On This Day 2002 – Sky Blue Lee Accepts Goal Invite From The Palace!

Posted by Admin · Leave a Comment

On this day (24th August) in 2002 the Sky Blues player-manager  Gary McAllister had prepared his team for their fourth match in the new Division One season hoping to remain unbeaten having won their opener 2-1 against Sheffield United, a goalless draw mid week at newly promoted Brighton & Hove Albion and a 2-1 win at newly promoted Reading. Their pre-season had also gone well with only one draw and one defeat in the five game tour of Germany. The Sky Blues also got away victories at Scunthorpe United, Port Vale and Rushden & Diamonds in England and a 1-1 draw at home to Scottish club Dundee United (the only fixture at Highfield Road).

Today the team were back at Highfield Road looking forward to their game with Crystal Palace. There had been some speculation that our controversial striker Lee Hughes might be on his way back to West Bromwich Albion but he was in today’s team, as was veteran Steve Walsh who started and became City’s third oldest debutant ever!   There were 15,524 spectators (including 1,138 Palace fans) hoping to see another Sky Blue win and their prayers were duly answered with a 1-0 victory. It was that man Hughes who scored the only goal of the game after only five minutes.  He was brought down in the box by the Glazier’s Darren Powell and got straight back up to put away the penalty!

It looked likely that the Sky Blues would extend their lead until Sky Blues midfielder (and quite recent CCFPA recruit) Youssef Safri got himself sent off in the 64th minute after two rash tackles earned two yellow cards. Palace got back into the game after this and started to turn the screw but McAllister’s men stood firm in a fairly scrappy contest. The win raised the Sky Blues one place to fourth in Division One.

Macca’s Men lined up as follows (CCFPA members underlined):-

Morten HyldgaardRichard ShawDean GordonYoussef SafriMo KonjicCalum DavenportYoussef Chippo (Jay Bothroyd -55), John EustaceLee Hughes (Barry Quinn -68), Julian Joachim (Steve Walsh -68) and David Thompson.

Unused subs: Gary McSheffrey and Gary Montgomery (gk)

The Eagles’ team, managed by the late, great Trevor Francis, that day was:-

Matthew Clarke, Curtis Fleming (Steven Thomson -81), Danny Granville, Tony Popovic, Darren Powell, Hayden Mullins, Shaun Derry (Andrew Johnson -67), Aki Rihilahti (Tommy Black -77), ‘Dele Adebola, Dougie Freedman and Danny Butterfield         Unused subs: Dean Austin and Alexanders Kolinko (gk)   Referee:- Phil Prosser

In the centre of Palace’s attack that day was future Sky Blue (and popular CCFPA member) ‘Dele Adebola! The return game at Selhurst Park on New Year’s Day finished 1-1 with the ‘Cov.Kid’ (now CCFPA member) Gary McSheffrey getting the Sky Blues’ goal in the 69th minute and Palace’s equaliser coming just three minutes later from Ade Akinbiyi.
