OK, so I have to admit that I might have got the opposition wrong.
It could have been Hartlepool? All I remember was that it was around 1975/6, Ian Buckley was playing at left back and might have scored.
But I do remember (I think!) looking in the paper the next day and seeing the attendance as 1,501.
That was low by our standards even in those days. I remember an attendance in 73/4 of around 1,450, but other than that we stayed well above 1,500 (well, a few hundred over at least!).
I remember Dragan repeatedly telling us in those days, that we needed crowds of 4,000 to break even.
