Good going that before general sale.
To be honest when were doing well games never get to general sale, even big allocations. League one season Oldham 4.5k, vale 4.5k, mk 7.5k none came close to gs, we have to be top 2 though for it to happen, be a cracking day out for everyone that day, I'll be flying home from the Philippines while it's on, hopefully to the good news of 3 points on arrival home.

Yeah I remember a few big followings in league 1 not making general sale.

Preston North End
6th April - Leeds (h)
9th April - Sheff Utd (h)
13th April - West Brom (a)

If we're going to nick 5th or 6th then we'll be made to work for it.

I can see you beating the Blades, as their style suits you more, Leeds I'm not so sure
Did a predictor thing yesterday, had Preston down as beating us. it's probably our hardest fixture left, not that it means a great deal in this league

I'm hoping Ipswich won't pass on any money to us until they know it is on. You'd never get your money back
At least it’s only £5 each I guess. Was hoping today would be the yes or no as to whether it’s on or not. Will just buy the tickets and see what happens

Oddly enough, I’m more confident of beating Leeds than Sheff Utd. We’ve got an absolutely ridiculous record of midweek home games. Not sure if it really means anything but I’m always confident on a midweek game at Deepdale.

Hoping the shock of not beating SU will spur the team on to greater things. All injured players will be back for the Preston game too. Tough place to go.

You managing 1k to the lane?
Given it looks almost certain we'll be taking more up to yours than you brought (1,300ish? Ironicially, this is the only season the following isn't listed on our site for) down to us this season Blade I decided to have a look at Sheff Utd followings at ours since the turn of the millennium.

For how often our away support is criticised north of Brum (rightly so) it's not as if Sheff Utd travel down here in big numbers -

07/08 - 825
08/09 - 813
09/10 - 807
10/11 - 794
13/14 - 914
14/15 - 752
17/18 - 1,972

Interesting to look at, obviously your numbers to London will be swelled but down this way it's pretty mediocre.

1450 ish it was this year. Yep dont recall claiming we travel reyt well anywhere to be honest.
On that list 1st one was midweek, next one was a 5.30 sky game, next one was 3pm hendo hatrick ,poor following, next one relegation season, next one bottom of league one in November, next one we were in the 4th year league one playoffs under clough but away support was very poor all that year. Weve never had any sort of big game down there at all.

I know you haven't in fairness, was just an observation.

1,483 you had this season in fairness, don't remember it being that many. We may just about scrape it...
