    Who's going to this one? This will be my first away game of the season, was going to the Barnet game until they changed the kick-off time.

    We have an allocation of 1,341 tickets and the club have tweeted we have sold more than 200 in the first half hour. I think if we keep up our form it will be difficult for non STs to get tickets for away games.

    On a unrelated matter, I read yesterday we have limited tickets for Exeter away in January because of redevelopment. Does anyone know how many that will be?

    Yeah got mine this morning, old school standing and no roof!
    I read that also about Exeter which is a shame because i've only got 7 grounds to complete my 92 and that is one of them. When they played Morecombe last week no tickets were given to away fans. I'm pretty sure they will give us some though otherwise they run the risk of lots in the home end.

    I thought clubs had to provide tickets for away fans?

    You can buy a ticket today. I need to get mine as I'm looking forward to this one as my closest game this season.

    taken ill and missed Exeter at home(only 5th game missed at home in over 50 years as an adult)and Swindon away.If Ifeel ok will go on Saturday as can't see us playing Barnet again in the near future,definitley going to Accrington though

    Fulham's an odd one
    missed them on the way down
    only ever drawn against them once in cup competition
    and not played them in the league for 49 years

    so there will not be many who have seen city at the cottage

    Our first season in the top flight lost 3-0 at highfield road I remember Johnny Haynes running the show without breaking sweat.It was 1-1 at Craven Cottage they finished bottom and we just escaped can't remember much about that game though except being chased by skinheads.

    I'm going .... living in West Yorkshire I think Accrington is my nearest game .... or maybe Mansfield Town ? Both are on the list to do and also getting very near to doing the 92.

    First fixture I looked for when they came out. Getting the rattler up from Crewe to Preston, picked up by son no.1, his mate and son no.2, then by car to Accrington.
    Two Sky Blues and 2 Reds in the car should be interesting.
    Then hopefully a lift back to Preston.

    I've been to watch the RoI twice at Craven Cottage. Old fashioned ground but great atmosphere particularly when half the ground are Italian. Great to hear them sing their national anthem.

    Our away support this season is often 25% or more of the gate. Imagine that in a full Ricoh for example, 8k away fans!

    Accrington are averaging home league crowds this season of 1,600 (including away fans) so I should imagine we will be outnumbering the home support.
    PS. I sat with the 154 Accrington fans for their game at Crewe last season and they're a good bunch. Looking forward to a week on Saturday.

    Just bought my two tickets this morning. Very excited now. Would love to sell out the whole 2000 allocation. Be double the home end then.

    Just bought mine. Short journey from where I live. Very embarrassing having to go there .
    Should be an important game.

    Well don't be embarrassed tucking into the tripe barms washed down with half a pint of Benedictine :emoji_relaxed:
    You don't get that at Anfield or Stamford Bridge.
