    THERE HAD BEEN A SURPRISE LATE CHANGE IN THE LEEDS TEAM, WHEN RESERVED DEFENDER PAUL MADELEY WAS INCLUDED AS A CENTRE FORWARD WITH SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS TO SHADOW CHELSEA'S PETER OSGOOD.

    THE CROWD OF MORE THAN 50,000 FANS WERE LOUD WITH THEIR CHEERS WHEN OSGOOD OUTWITTED A FAST AND EXPERT MADELEY TO START CHELSEA'S FIRST RAID.

HE SLAMMED THE BALL AGAINST THE UPRIGHT AT THE GOAL MOUTH, BUT TAMBLING WAS FAST ON THE REBOUND TO SCORE SAT CLOSE RANGE WITH ANOTHER POWERFUL RIGHT-FOOTED SHOT.
