Highlights from one of tonight's European semi-final second leg matches.
Commentator BARRY DAVIES
British hopes of European success this season now rest with one club - League champions Nottingham Forest. After beating the European champions Liverpool earlier in the competition,
Brian Clough 's side play the West German champions Cologne for a place in next month's Final - and the chance to keep the European Cup in England for the third season running.
The Management Trail
Since the war well over 1.000 football managers have lost their jobs in a profession described by England manager Ron Green -wood as ' often very much a hit-and-miss affair'. Just over two years ago Sportsnight featured the early apprenticeships of two young managers, Alan Durban at Shrewsbury and Graham Taylor at Lincoln, both in the Third Division. Since then Durban has moved to Second Division Stoke, and Taylor. wooed by Elton John , to Watford, now in Division Three. John Motson has been back to check on how they are coping with the precarious world of football management.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
