My Pub in Wigan!

A v Wigan 23.11.2013
A v Bournemouth 30.11.2013
Driving past Darlington on the way to Middlesbrough

Only 381 of us at Middlesbrough but we celebrated a 1-0 win with a late late winner from Mathew Upson

Lucky 2,820 turn up at Charlton on Baxing Day.  Sadly the XI Brighton players appeared over stuffed with Christmas dinner as we lost 3-2. 
Now what is this doing here I hear you ask.  Well I missed my first away game of the season, as we were beating Blackpool 1-0 we were in the Elan Valley as we drove from one of Lizs brothers to another between Christmas and New Year
A v Derby - great turn out - shame we lost 1-0!
Must be in the Potteries

Yep A v Port Vale in the FA Cup
A v Burnley

248 Loyal fans make the long long midweek trip - 6 hours to get home as the M6 was closed at Junction 14!  Home at 5.11am!  Ouchhhhhhh!
A Sunday in Watford - easily our worst away performance of the season as our run of 4 away games on the trot ends in a 0-2 defeat.  Poor, very very poor, the 2,000 away fans deserved better!
Beautiful sunrise - must mean a Monday night away trip to Hull City
486 make the long trip - possibly our worst first half all season and we are 0-2 down, we play with a bit of pride second half and pull one back, but we miss out on the 6th round - booooo
A v Bolton

The first of three consecutive midweek away Tuesday night games - not a good start lost 1-0!

Midweek away game 2 and an entertaining 3-3 draw

Another away trip, but this time a Saturday 0-0 bore draw at Barnsley

We got to Leicester for their promotion party and become massive party poopers by running out easy 4-1 winners!
