Commentator BARRY DAVIES
The Watney Cup started in 1970 when Derby County won this new, event, beating Manchester United 4-1 in the final. In the semi-final of that year Manchester United defeated Hull City 5-4 on penalty kicks. Last season Fourth Division Colchester United became champions via the penalty-spot. They beat First Division West Bromwich Albion 8-7 on a penalty kick decider. Penalties will be used again today should the finalists be equal at the end of 90 minutes.
