One of my favourite ever Rovers goals that one. If I remember rightly it was on Sky on a Friday night.

Not the best quality, but 5:40 - absolute genius! Enjoy!

Charlton Athletic away on 26th April 1958 and Rovers win 4-3 to return to the Top Flight. A photo I’ve not knowingly seen before and one Infound recently on Facebook.

I was 26 days old, still in Queens Park on an incubator, so couldn’t make the game..😆

I thinks that’s Peter Dobing nearest the ball but not sure who the other two Rovers players are.

Left is either Vernon or Douglas. Middle is either Ken Taylor or Tommy Johnstone.

Looks like McGrath or Dave Whelan in the background.

I think it's Douglas, Johnstone, Whelan.

I think The Valley held about 75 thousand in those days.

And the Charlton player could be either Eddie Firmani or George Robledo.

Couldn't have been Robledo. He played for Newcastle Utd.

I went to that game with a RAF mate and spent the weekend at his place in Rutherglen. Douglas was unplayable and when we got back home, his dad was apoplectic and raged “We’ve put up with Matthews all these years and now you’ve got bloody Douglas”. The headline on the back page of the Scottish Sunday Express just said “BLACK DOUGLAS”

I remember that headline. Duggie played them off the park and my Scottish relatives thought Douglas was better than Matthews.

Patsy Kensit between Shearer and Keegan; one of the Gallagher brothers above them; John Lennon too and another Shearer at eleven o'clock.

Ha ha, superb!
