Mostly away games but I went to quite a few - Palace 67, Burnley, WBA away in 87 as we went for promotion and Blackburn in 89. Two games of note Wigan and the great escape is completed amid fantastic scenes and 78 at Rotherhamwas the debut for a certain Alan Knight.

Home to Blackburn in 1989, away at Brighton in 1992, away to Swindon in 1995 & away to Walsall in 2000. Had to work on that great dat in 2006. Desperate for us to win. Knew we were one down. On the drive home we scored, almost lost control of thre car as I forgot myself. Got home just in time to hear the penalty & screamed the street down on the final whistle.
