Could be Fulham v Oxford United from 80/1 which was 4-0 to Oxford.

I was at that match (my first visit to Craven Cottage) but I don't think it is Oxford who are the visitors. If you look closely at the visiting team's yellow shirts they seem to have markings on them which don't match what Oxford were wearing at the time. The episode in question was broadcast in December 1982 so I think it is more likely that they used a game from 81-82 involving a visiting team who wore yellow as their change kit.

Edit; as an aside, it's interesting to note that later on in the episode, they show copies of a matchday programme on a table.
I think this could well be the only time matchday programmes for a fictional match have been shown on TV, at least in the UK.
