Cobblers, Rovers and Rangers!! Sad day back in 1949 we should have won the double but failed to beat struggling second division Leicester thanks to a certain Don Revie.

The last 2 homes games with Forest & QPR & as Dave said, a dark day in our history, so could have been the first team since the war to have won the double, bl00dy Leicester!!!
