Just Googled this and Bob Latchford scored the only goal in an away win over Chelsea hours after I was born. Very pleased with that, I was sure it would be some obscure journeyman's only goal for the club in a draw with Oldham or some other also ran (Chelsea weren't all that back then, to be fair).
