The key game there was the 1-0 win at Huddersfield which saved our bacon. Not there but home games with Barnsley in 79 and Huddersfield in 84 were uninspiring.

Only the Huddersfield game for me, other results had gone our way, massive relief - we were saved. I was in Dubai with my Evertonian mate for the 07 game, we were properly tuuur-watted and I had to buy drinks all night. Still paying the credit card bill now.

3 for me. The home games with Barnsley in 1979, I rember dragging my Uncle along who in turn insisted we had to sit in the South stand & not stand in the North terraces. Barnsley again in 1990 & very importantly at Huddersfield in 1996 when we stay up & sent Millwall down.
