    Wasn't the MIllwall play-off match the one where our keeper was assaulted on the pitch before the game ? (Digweed I think)

    I remember the game and seeing them burn police helmets. Don't remember trouble afterwards but there must have been a heavy escort.

    We played them just inside the next season and won at The Den again. I think that was a midweek game too.
    I've lost my way. If anyone should find it, do return it quickly. I should imagine it quite rusty by now.

      Wasn't it on John Robinson, by the touch line? And someone here me on this thread, that the assault was actually in the regular league game the following season 1991/92.

      Leighton Town 1992 Ryman Div 3. Walking to the ground got ambushed between 2 Pubs with CS Gas and an assortment of weapons including a Baseball Bat ,Coshes and one lad ended up with stitches from a Machete. Aggro followed in the ground as Stewards tried to Keep fans apart .
      Mad isn't it..think about the descriptions I've had about that match from you and other people who were there everytime I go to watch LT...with about 150 on max. Still got a few urchins watching them - kicked off in the club house at Havant & Waterlooville a few years back when H&W beat Leighton 3-0 and started their cup run. Leigh park...not a great idea!

      Watching Bmth - noticed Chesterfield got a mention from an Albion fan, horrible place, only place I've been jumped watching AFCB. Cardiff obviously in that Aug-Dec2001 period before their Leeds cup match - same thing, bottles and coins from the right hand side, stared out from the left side, slaps given out in the car park etc etc Swindon never friendly either.

      Other than that, my mate had watched Blackburn for 35 years and Boro is easily the worst away he's been to.

      Shrewsbury in 2001 wasn't the nicest day out in what was meant to be a celebration
      Sunderland in 1981 after all but sending them down was a bit worrying afterwards
      Newcastle in 1983 at the Cup replay wasn't much fun
      Luton on a couple of occasions wasn't that much fun either

      Correct. Digweed was injured in the warm up, Gary Chivers started in goal to to replaced by Beeney after 10 mins or so. Beeney apprehended the Millwall thug who assaulted Robinson . 'Twas a league game, though only a few months after the playoff game

      I agree that any game at the old den was intimidating! Remember us winning when Wardy scored there was hardly any brighton in the away end but there was a lot of us incognito around the ground , remember the locals fighting with the police and challenging anyone they didn't recognise , luckily I was too young to be bothered with! A strange game was the 1982 cup game at Barnet where at eve end it seemed like everyone wanted to arrack Brighton , memory may be playing tricks but I think palace were waiting for us outside. Another mention for the dell it could get very hairy there too

      Blimey I had forgotten about that. One of their fans ran out of the stand and did a high kick right in the middle of John Robinson's back!
