32 years and one day since our promotion winning match at home to Southend in our Championship winning season.
Not expecting champagne football tonight even TC’s team who arguably were a more experienced team than our current team made a very nervy start.
It was not until after Steve “the weave” Neville scored that we started to settle down. Brian McDermott scored a second and ultimately the winner and late in the second half an ex City player David Crown pulled one back to make the last few minutes less than comfortable before we were able to celebrate our promotion back into, as it was then, the Third Division
Feeling very nervous now Brown and his team will be looking at a packed SJP with our supporters anticipating a promotion party and such is the nature of football will take a great delight in spoiling everything.
They have nothing to lose and will no doubt try to knock us out of our stride immediately so vital we don’t concede an early goal which would increase the pressure on us.
We need a similar start and performance as recent games.The positive for us, as Barrow have nothing to play for, is if we can take an early lead and then add to it then hopefully they will not really have any strong motivation to come back at us.
