We've been taking a look through our archives to bring you memories of glorious days and great sportsmen and women to grace the Midlands scene. Here, reporter JOSEPH MASI recalls Wolves' first victory over Manchester United for more than two decades IT WAS a victory achieved against all the odds and one that prompted tears from life-long supporters in the South Bank.

Tomorrow marks the anniversary Wolves celebrated their first victory over Manchester United in 23 years.

And it was win that, before kick-off, even the most optimistic of fans would have struggled to predict.

Sir Alex Ferguson brought his reigning champions to the West Midlands on January 17, 2004.

United were sat top of the Premier League while Dave Jones's men were rooted to the foot of the table. There were mismatches all over the park - Ruud van Nistelrooy versus Paul Butler, Rio Ferdinand versus Steffen Iversen and the future best player on the planet, Cristiano Ronaldo, versus Lee Naylor.

A Wolves win seemed out of the question. But some heroic defending together with wasteful finishing, particularly from van Nistelrooy and Paul Scholes, saw Wolves get to half-time all square.

In the 67th minute though, the home crowd were transported into dreamland when Kenny Miller pounced on a Wes Brown error to score Wolves' first goal against Man United since 1984.

Miller and his colleagues had ploughed so much into reaching that point.

So with 20 minutes remaining, and with United's tendency to score late goals, the Molineux faithful knew there was still a long way to go.

But it was from that point the Wolves crowd showed what can happen when it unites as one.

There was not a single player who, after the game, did not doff his cap in thanks for the thundering noise which then poured down from all four sides of the stadium.

And as grown men wiped away tears from their eyes, it also proved a reminder that anything can happen in a football - a game that refuses to be chained by logic.
