On this day in 1980, Paul Dyson was the hero for Coventry City as they beat reigning champions Liverpool 1-0 at Highfield Road.

The defender headed the Sky Blues' winner on January 19th 25 years ago after just six minutes in front of 31,644 fans, and the result ended Liverpool's 15 game unbeaten run in the league.

The Reds would also go on to bounce back from that defeat and win the league as City ended up 15th, staying up comfortably nine points above the relegation zone.
