Looking back through the history books for the events, signings and memorable matches that happened on this day in City’s history.

Saturday 28th September 1974

Rodney Marsh’s goal’s brilliant goal is enough to beat his former club QPR and is widely considered one of the best goals ever to be scored at Maine Road. The victory maintains the Blues’ 100% home record and put Tony Book’s men second in Division One just two points off leaders Ipswich Town.


Wednesday 28th September 1977

City crash out of the UEFA Cup at the first hurdle following a 0-0 draw against Widzew Lodz in Poland. The Blues drew the first leg 2-2, despite leading 2-0 at on stage, and exit on the away goals rule in disappointing fashion with many tipping the side that narrowly finished runners-up to Liverpool in the league the season before as one of the competition favourites.
