Plymouth in 1965 first game with substitutes and Brian Lewis missed a penalty too. Blackburn, Swindon and Torquay.

2 for me 1993 & 1999 the two home, during what were pretty dark seasons. Wasn't there in 2004 at Charlton but Berger scored a fantastic goal only for Shaka to make a rare clanger at the death for us to lose.
