On this day in 2001...

Amid the eeriest of atmospheres following the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Centre earlier in the day, Albion played out a League Cup tie with Swindon Town.

The Baggies won 2-0 in extra-time with goals from Jordao and Scott Dobie.

The authorities insisted the tie go ahead as opposition fans were already travelling to the game when the atrocities took place.

Albion’s players were actually training at The Hawthorns in the afternoon when the pictures began to come in from New York and later watched the news as it unfolded from within the ground.
