My late mother's birthday and I was at five of those games including the two five goal defeats by Brum. We could have got something from both games at fratton Harry Harris hit the bar with the final kick and at St Andrews we were 3-0 down in twenty minutes with Geoff Vowden on fire but it should have been 3-3 at half time with any luck (it was 3-2), two late goals sealed our fate.

Winning thw next three games made up it though.

Away day Blues

We can be brilliant one game and then woeful the next...usually after we've won (usually pretty well) at home but then we lose away, as we did at Blackpool.

Vital View - League 2, 27th September

A lead at was extended by Plymouth with Blackpool recording a surprising win, talking of which Wycombe's five-one win against Crewe was certainly a 'surprising' win.

Match highlights - Blackpool 3-1 Pompey

The mystery that is Pompey and our dodgy away form continued with another defeat suffered at Blackpool, who hadn't won at home since the first game of the season before this 3-1 win.
