TIGERTUBE : Tigers topple Wolves in 1976/77

With City lying 19th in the Premier League table on 19 points, Saturday’s home game against Wolves, placed 17th on 20 points, assumes added importance. A win would see us leapfrog the men from Molineux and likely move out of the bottom three, defeat however would confirm we are worthy denizens of the trapdoor spots. With that in mind, here’s a clip of City vanquishing Wolves during the 1976/77 season, a 2-0 win at Boothferry Park with both City goals coming from noted amateur-professional and antique valuer John Hawley. Wolves wearing black shorts with gold socks in Hull is a bizarre sight, but back then City paired white shorts and socks with their black and amber striped shirts.

    Oh how I remember that game. If I recall Wolves had been relegated the previous season and took one helluva beating from the Tigers! It had special relevance to me as being a kid and never thinking City would ever grace the top flight, I had a favourite team in each division; Wolves being my Div 1 team only because they played in a very similar kit to us! Well, come Saturday who was I to support, it’s funny but when it actually comes down to it, there was only one team to follow! Up the Tigers!
