Happy birthday to Macca. Welcome to the 45 club. There in 1987 for our Easter Monday clash with Argyle. Shock home defeat almost cost us automatic promotion for the third year running. Also the home games in 1990 & 1992.

Blackburn, Orient, Bristol City, Palace and Argyle. Memories? Nothing special really Blackburn win came as our promotion run in 68 had stalled.
