The striker's hat-trick against Tottenham Hotspur under the floodlights at Elland Road in August 1992 proved to be the first of the new Premier League era.

"Leeds taught us a lesson in everything they did. After their defeat on Saturday, we caught them on a bad night," reflected Spurs joint caretaker manager Doug Livermore. Tottenham would go on to end the season in eighth position while Leeds United s title defence petered out to a disappointing 17th place finish.
