Moment of the match

7th March 1998 - Warrington Town 0 - 0 Maine Road

The "Ravanelli Rear-ender"

The score is 0-0. Warrington Town are enjoying a long period of possesion at the start of the second half and are pressurising the Maine Road penalty area. However, the current attack breaks down and the ball rolls through to the Maine Road full back, Robert Stevenson. The crowd are screaming for another "Schmeichel Spoon" as the defender draws back his foot. He takes an almighty swing and lamps it straight into the backside of the nearest Town player. The ball rebounds and bullets towards the bottom corner of the net, forcing the goalkeeper, Alan Foster, into an athletic save, low to his left.
