Oxford, Forest, Rotherham and Brighton from the bygone days and Villa from the modern era. The 2003 game at Citeh was the first ever game at Eastlands/City of Manchester Stadium or whatever it is called!!

I remember that one Dave, our first Premiership away game, robbed by a last minute equaliser if I remember rightly.
