Stoke City v Swans

With a Premier League game away at Stoke coming up, does anyone have any memories of games against The Potters?

I can’t recall anything about the away League Cup tie of 1990 (programme cover above),  apart from the fact that it was played at the old Victoria Ground.  The Swans did the hard work by drawing 0-0 in this first leg in front of a crowd of 7,806, but then promptly lost the second leg at the Vetch a week later in front of 4,464 spectators.

In 1993 Andy Legg scored a sensational volley against Stoke at the Vetch, beating goalkeeper Bruce Grobelaar in the process, but the game was lost 2-1 in front of a league-season high crowd of 8,368.  I might be wrong, but I think that there was quite serious trouble after that game.
