Sun Postal Sports - npower League 1 - 2017/18
Tried to make some improvements, partly frustration inspired signings to try to improve our poor defensive record. Also smashed our transfer record with the 300k January signing of Balic who promptly whinged about settling in England and decided to 'fix' this by moving to Burnley for 400k 6 months later.
Mason left after the board accepted a 300k bid, should have been double that at least.
npower League 1
Predicted: 24th | Final Position: WINNERS | Graph
The 4th game of the season saw us suffer only our 2nd EVER league defeat which was followed 4 games later by our 3rd EVER league defeat. This wasn't going to be as easy as previous years with the main problem being poor away form and an inability to keep a clean sheet.
Eventually however we found some consistency and managed to put some distance between ourselves and the chasing pack. Promotion was confirmed with 5 games left and the Championship 1 game later.
FA Cup - Fourth Round
A decent run including a good win over Millwall and holding Liverpool to a draw at home before they hammered us at Anfield.
League Cup - First Round
Very disappointing exit.
Johnstone Paint Trophy - WINNERS | Final
Lucky in the final as Peterborough were much the better side.
Finances - Gate receipts of 600k from the FA cup replay with Liverpool and 200k for the JPT final helped keep the finances respectable.
