31/10/92 v Leicester (a) 1-2 Division One

Kevin Sheedy kicked Simon Grayson up a height on the touchline in the last minute and got a red card. I asked John if this was a bit out of character for Kevin Sheedy, as he always seemed the quiet sort on the pitch.

"Not really. Kevin had a bit of a temper on him if anyone upset him. He always said that he couldn't tackle but he could definitely hurt someone if he needed to. I really remember that time at Leicester when he lost it and launched Simon Grayson because I was only half a second behind him. In the dressing room afterwards Keegan went mad at Sheedy and I kept thinking that it could have been me.

As most people know, once you upset Keegan it's often difficult to get back on his good side.
