Match of the Day hits its 50th birthday this weekend, but Town fans had to wait to see their side on the famous BBC TV programme.

It was May 1966 before Kenneth Wolstenholme and the cameras came to Leeds Road to capture the Division II (now Championship) clash with Coventry City.

Town were beaten 2-0 and ended up fourth in the table.

Coventry were third, with Manchester City and Southampton going up.

The first Match of the Day, on August 22, 1964, featured Liverpool’s 3-2 win over Arsenal.

The 47,620 crowd inside Anfield outnumbered the audience on BBC2 – only available in London at the time – two to one.

The same day, Town drew 1-1 at home to Bolton Wanderers in front of 12,657.
