Wallop. What was that? The realization crashing down that we are back in League One.
Bury away, Northampton home, Shrewsbury home, Walsall away. Our first four games. Full list here.
‘Highlights’ include Parky back with Bolton on August 27th, our first ever game against AFC Wimbledon on September 17th, Millwall away on October 8th, Gillingham away October 22nd and Sheffield United home on November 26th.
We are away on both Boxing Day and New Years Eve, but have short journeys to MK Dons and Southend. Easter Monday we host Gillingham. The run in looks a tad tricky, but there are some enticing away trips to Northampton, Sheffield United, Peterborough, Coventry and Chesterfield if we are doing well.
One of my bug bears are long midweek journeys. I note that we play Port Vale, Bristol Rovers, Oldham and Shrewsbury away on a Tuesday night.
Anyway, a weird mix of anticipation and depression as those fixtures were announced this morning.
