Skipper leads remembrance
The fixture kicked off at 8.07pm - as a mark of respect and remembrance for those who lost their lives as a result of the tragic events of April 1989. The match at which the disaster took place, the FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest, was ended six minutes after kick-off, at 3:06pm.
The minute's silence before kick off was impeccably observed by both sets of supporters, and asked before the game - Nigel Adkins discussed the importance of such a tribute.
"I think across football, it will always be remembered and rightly so," he said. "It was a very tragic day for everybody and our heartfelt thoughts and respects go out to all of the families that sadly lost people that day."
