David Penney shields the ball from Paul Dickov during Swansea City's trip to face Brighton in April 1994.

The two sides were heading for mid-table finishes in Division Two, and Penney and Dickov would both be on the scoresheet at the Goldstone Ground.

But it was Scottish striker Dickov who would wear the bigger smile come the full-time whistle as the Seagulls ran out 4-1 winners, with Penney - who had recently rejoined the Swans for a second spell - netting a mere consolation for Frank Burrows' side.

Come the end of the season the Swans would finish just ahead of Brighton, finishing 13th to the south-coast outfit's 14th.

But the Swans did, of course, have the high of Wembley success to reflect on at the end of the campaign, seeing off Huddersfield in the Autoglass Trophy final.
