Spurs were appearing in their third final in seven seasons, having won the trophy in 1981 and 1982 and were strong favourites, while the Sky Blues were the underdogs and making a first appearance in a domestic cup final.

The Sky Blues clinched the victory in extra-time, with BBC commentator John Motson stating it was "the finest Cup Final I've had the pleasure of commentating on".
