Hull at home and Bristol City away for me. Ray Hiron scoing both goals. Didn't make the Dell in 1964 (only 12) but I think that was the day the visiting Pompey fans demolished the gates and just walked in without paying!! Great win too!

Just the 2 for me. The away game at Ipswich in 1992, seems like yeasterday, let alone nearly 20 years ago. Both sides going well & we got spanked 5-2. The all conquering side of 2003 stuffing Derby 6-2 in 2003, some great names of our recent history scoring that day, happy days. 2 matches & 15 goals!!!

Finest in the Football League

I don't hide how highly I rate Chaplin. I feel he's the best striker in league two - better than most in league one. Cook said he is the best goalscorer outside the Premier League.
