On this day: Bristol City 3-0 Bolton Wanderers

It is 34 years to the day since Terry Cooper's men lifted the Freight Rover Trophy at Wembley.

Formally known as the Associate Members' Cup at the time (the EFL Trophy today), City ran out victorious under the Wembley Twin Towers.

A crowd of 54,402 supporters roared on both sets of players with City surviving early pressure from Bolton.

But survive they did before hitting their opponents with two goals from Glyn Riley and another from Howard Pritchard.

City are the most successful club in the competition, having won it three times in their history: 1986, 2003 and 2015.

Below you can enjoy some of the photos from that day in 1986!
