Last week saw the 30th anniversary of Nottingham Forest’s League Cup final victory over Luton Town at Wembley.

Brian Clough’s Reds came from behind to lift the trophy on 9th April 1989.

A Nigel Clough penalty cancelled out Mick Harford’s opener before Neil Webb struck and Clough again sealed a 3-1 win.
