Not only did Goodman play for West Brom and Wolves, but the former striker also had a spell at Walsall, who have always been a third-wheel when it comes to the Black Country derby.

Goodman was a top striker both in his time at The Hawthorns between 1987 and 1991 before suiting up in gold and black between 1994 and 1998. He was a regular for both sides, scoring 60 in 158 games for Albion and 33 in 125 for Wolves.

Gray is one of the finest strikers that West Midlands football has ever seen. He is more well known for his time at Aston Villa and Everton but the 20-times Scotland international was also prolific for the two Black Country rivals.

Gray helped Wolves win the 1980 League Cup – their last piece of major silverware – and helped West Brom avoid relegation from the Second Division in 1988.

4. Andy Thompson

Andy Thompson played one season for West Brom in 1985-86. He appeared in 24 league games and scored 1 goal. He then joined Wolves and went on to make 451 appearances in an 11-year stay at Molineux.

Thompson also notched 45 goals and cemented his status as the undoubted penalty king of his Wolves era. He epitomised versatility, playing in a variety of positions for Wolves, but most commonly as a full-back.

He was part of the Wolves revival of the late 1980s which saw the club bounce back from near extinction to win successive Fourth and Third Division championships and the Sherpa Van Trophy at Wembley in 1988.
