Coming up - Notts County

The drop

2016, the 30th anniversary of the Milk Cup, the 20th anniversary of our last football league promotion. Things happen when the year ends in a six.

When we met Notts County at the beginning of season it felt like we'd be testing our promotion credentials against a team who would surely be competing come May. In fact, they looked disinterested and shellshocked from their relegation last season. We on the other hand, were breathtaking in pace and style.

They continue to falter in the nothingness of 15th place, but this is still a test of our promotion credo insomuch that we need to start showing some resilience through an unrelenting period which will run throughout January at the very least.

Old game of the day

An important game from the promotion run-in from 95-96. Having had moderate form up to February, we hit a run of form that lasted until the end of the season and promotion. Because of the averageness that preceded it, every point counted. Includes a typically understated goal celebration from David Rush.
