On this day in 1994...

Alan Buckley replaced Keith Burkinshaw as Albion manager after the Baggies had struggled at the start of the season.

The redevelopment of The Hawthorns may have played a part, as the Throstles had to play their first five league games of the season away from home.

Buckley had been a prolific goalscorer in the lower divisions with neighbouring Walsall, and had led them to a number of cup successes before building his managerial reputation at Grimsby Town.
