The magic number?!

The magic number?!

Yes, our second win of the season on Tuesday night at Preston but what do the two results have in common? They were both up North? - Yes, but not what I am thinking off. Only 2 games Jimmy Kebe has played well? - Again correct but think numbers!

Yes, thats right both games were played on the 29th of the month. August 29th, Barnsley 1-3 Reading. September 29th, Preston 1-2 Reading!

Bad news is that we are not scheduled to play on the 29th again this season, unless any games get moved for TV coverage!

If you look at it another way, 2+9 = 11 and our only other win this season came in the league cup on August 11th! Again though, we are not scheduled to play on the 11th again this season either, so we better learn to win on other days of the month going forward!
