On this day: Gally shines on debut

17 years ago today, Kevin Gallacher made his debut for Coventry City after his club record 900,000 move from Dundee United.

It was the second time in four months that John Sillett had splashed out on a player from the Scottish Premier League after earlier signing Kevin Drinkell from Rangers for 800,000.

Gallacher made an immediate impact on his debut, helping City to a 3-2 win over Chelsea in the league at Highfield Road.

Steve Livingstone scored after just 28 seconds and after a fightback from the visitors, Cyrille Regis scored a second-half winner.

The win put the Sky Blues in good heart for the League Cup semi-final first-leg against Nottingham Forest a week later.
