With the BBC today featuring classic FA Cup quarter-final matches, we couldn't resist showing the goals from our memorable victory in 1988!

A 2-1 win against Watford was achieved thanks to goals by Eric Young and John Fashanu, taking Wimbledon into the semi-final of a competition that ended with Wembley glory against Liverpool.

Vinnie Jones and the boys are shown celebrating Eric's headed equaliser in the match at Plough Lane. It was a match too when our current manager Glyn Hodges featured for the opposition! 

Take a look at the goals below and extended highlights on Match of the Day from 12 March 1988.
