LEAGUE CUP RECORD

The League Cup is a domestic tournament open to the 92 clubs in the Premier League and three Football League divisions. We played in the first two seasons of the cup but did not enter for the next four years.

After not making it past the first four rounds until 1977, we won it that season in a replayed final against Liverpool and became the first team to successfully retain the cup against Southampton the following year, before losing the 1980 final against Wolves

Eight years later we won the cup for a third time, beating Luton in the final and regained it the next season against Oldham. 1991 saw us lose 5-4 away to Coventry (after being 4-0 down after just 34 minutes).

We made the final for the last time in 1992, losing to Manchester United for their first ever League Cup win.
