Top 10: League Cup finals

2. QPR 3-2 West Brom, 1967

Having abandoned the previous home-and-away final format, the League Cup came alive with the first Wembley final. Top-flight West Brom were seemingly home and dry as Clive Clark brace's put them two up at half-time. But Roger Morgan's header halved the arrears, Rodney Marsh danced through the defence to equalise, and a memorable comeback was completed by the fittingly surnamed Mike Lazarus. In 18 incredible minutes, the unfancied outsiders had come from behind to become the first third-tier side to win a major trophy. Even if only temporarily, the League Cup had trumped the underdog romance of its big brother, the FA Cup.
