Emirates FA Cup third round classic goals: Tim Buzaglo

Woking's Tim Buzaglo celebrates his hat-trick at WBA in 1991

It was one of the most famous third round upsets of the 1990s and made a hero out of the distinctively-named Tim Buzaglo, whose hat-trick for Woking stunned West Bromwich Albion in 1991.

The non-League side from Surrey travelled to the Hawthorns knowing that no-one would give them a chance of upsetting the Baggies, who were then in the old Second Division.

But with Albion struggling in their own league that season, the Cards took advantage of a lack of confidence at the Hawthorns to win by 4-2 and Buzaglo's famous hat-trick is one which is never far away when FA Cup giant-killing packages are put together.

Woking had found themselves a goal down at the break thanks to Colin West's strike for the hosts, but a stunning second-half comeback turned the game on its head as Buzaglo netted his treble in the space of 15 minutes before Terry Worsfold made it 4-1.

A consolation goal from Albion's Darren Bradley wasn't enough and Geoff Chapple's side went on to face Everton in the fourth round a few weeks later, where they fell to a narrow 1-0 defeat.
