On this day: Sunday stroll

Long after the rest of the football world had gone on their summer holidays, Coventry City took on champions Everton on 26 May 1985 looking to complete yet another great escape.

A flu virus earlier in the season had caused the postponement of some of the Sky Blues' games and they were left needing three straight wins to overhaul Norwich and stay up.

Close-fought victories over relegated Stoke City and then Luton Town meant it all came down to an 11:30am start on a Sunday morning at Highfield Road.

Luckily Everton looked to have been celebrating their title win and were firmly in second gear as a crowd of 21,596 saw goals from Cyrille Regis (2), Micky Adams and Terry Gibson seal a 4-1 win.
