Blackpool in 73 brother got married at 2:30 in Fawcett Road so I missed the photos and the first half but Ray Hiron waited until the 46th minute to score the only goal. Cobblers in 79, the Shots in 80 - the day the tree caught fire!! - and United in 2007 - what a day that was! The Ferdinand og will live for ever in the memory.

My first away game, at Aldershot in 1980 and a win. Also the 3 home games from 1990 - 2007. The final game being another win over the Mancs, a great day.

With Stevenage drawing and Blackpool the only potential challenger winning we've got a six point cushion on Boro that's effectively seven given our superior goal difference.
