We start with a club legend born on this day in 1945 and an FA Cup third round tie against Peterborough United 20 years ago...
ON THIS DAY - JANUARY 8
1910 - Everton's first visit to the Lane and we ran out 3-1 winners, Bert Middlemiss on target twice, Robert Steel with the third.
1945 - Phil Beal's birthday. Ever-reliable, consistent full-back Phil made 420 appearances in all competitions between 1963-75. He was in the teams that won the League Cup in 1971 and 1973 and the UEFA Cup in 1972, as well as picking up a UEFA Cup runners-up medal in 1974. Happy birthday, Phil!
1994 - We needed a last-gasp equaliser from Jason Dozell to stay in the FA Cup via a 1-1 draw against Peterborough United at London Road. We then needed a penalty shoot-out to finally overcome the Post after another draw back at the Lane. That was our last penalty shoot-out success until the spot-kick win against Hull in the Capital One Cup earlier this season.
