The last 5 home games from 1987+. The defeat to Newcastle in 1988 with Paul Cascoigne was our last home game in top flight, until 2003. The defeat in 2001 to Palace was one of the worst home performances in living memory!!!

For me Liverpool, Newcastle, Millwall and Leyton Orient.

Of interest 1977 was our only ever league visit to Field Mill, Mansfield. They celebrated promotion that night.
