      Notes

      • Caretaker ManagerHoward Wilkinson acts as caretaker manager.
      • Parlour: Goal Not GivenOn 87 minutes Ray Parlour shot hits the underside of the crossbar and seemingly crosses the line before bouncing back into play. TV replays are inconclusive as to whether the ball has crossed the line.
