At Notts County in 1993 when a Paul Walsh header was enough to keep up in the automatic promotion race. We thought we were almost there. West Ham game finished later & they won 4-1, I think, those goals were enough to send them up. The home win to Watford in 1997 & that first ever prem win over the Mancs in 2004, what a fabulous day that was. 3 games, 3 wins, let's tonight makes it 4 out of 4.

Boro in 71, Charlton, Donny, and like Matt Notts with my son for his first away game! Not three wins but no defeats
