           NOTES
Pre-match entertainment was a 60 minute Albion 93' side versus a supporters club IX. The supporters paid 100 each for the privilege of playing.
A minutes silence was held before kick-off in memory of Bryan and Gary Robson's father, who had passed away three days before the game.
Brian Jensen, Des Lyttle and Matt Collins all made their final appearances for the club.
Albion manager Gary Megson failed to turn up to the game; he was spotted at Ashton Gate for the Bristol City v Cardiff City Division Two Play-Off Semi-Final.
Taylor's first goal was flagged offside but Albion fan and referee Paul Rejer overruled the linesman.
Lee Hughes played for both sides and also the supporters club XI (pre-match).
Uncle (Cyrille Regis) and nephew (Jason Roberts) played against each other.
The last vicar to play for Albion was reverend Jordan in 1909.
Steve Bull sat down on the pitch when Albion fans sang "stand up if you hate the Wolves".
Taylor played the last 15 minutes of the match in goal.
Brian Jensen saved Taylor's 90th minute penalty but the referee ordered it to be retaken. He scored with the last kick of the game.
Taylor made an emotional speech at the end of the match, sporting a t-shirt with the words "Bob Taylor is proud to be a Baggie".
