1980 & big crowd for promotion clash & a great 4-1 win against Huddersfield. 1985 & the thumping of Oldham & a 2-1 victory over our rivals of the time Swindon. A Defoe pen in 2008 made 4 wins out 4. Now there is rare thing. Also remember the 5-0 bashing by WBA & Mandaric didn't want to pay the players!!! The awful side we had under Graham Rix!!!
