I was thinking how good our home form has been in League One, in general, so I totted it up and in the league, since we got promoted, we've played 56 games and only lost 13.

8 in 2015-16
5 in 2016-17

Can you name them and the score?

Clue : They are 13 different sides (no side has beaten us twice)

Yep, spot on.

The last one is a tough one, I think.

Need the scores, as well.

Not sure of all the scores 15/16 but I seem to remember Gillingham last year 1-3 as the only time we have lost at home after being a goal up for a long time.

I had 11 initially:

Walsall 0-2, Sheff Utd 2-4, Bolton 0-1, MK Dons 1-2, Chesterfield 0-1, Oldham 0-1, Fleetwood 0-2, Millwall 0-4, Doncaster 0-3, Gillingham 1-3, Bradford 0-1

rigsby gave me Swindon so that's 12. Not sure of the score, though - 0-1?

Dammit, I thought of Shrewsbury but could only remember the 1-1 draw last season. Can't remember the scoreline from the season before.

Along similar lines, when were we last this deep in to the season and unbeaten at home? Must have been quite a while.

(I don't know, I'm asking!)

Either 1990/1 or as far back as 1980/1 again I have not looked just guessing.

'Kris' has all the scores correct (Swindon was 0-1) and 'Lord Football' has the missing match. Just need the score from that one?

Also, there's only been two goalless draws at home, since promotion.

Can you name them?

Good question, that.

Has to be a promotion season, I would guess.

Remember that game.

I think Huddersfield were near the bottom, as well.

I know we beat them up there on the opening day with a goal from Brett Angle!! :smile: .. Loved that commentator on the club video.

"Oh dear, oh dear and Southend have taken the lead!" .. In a thick Yorkshire accent.

It was John Adams commentating.

Not at Huddersfield away it wasn't.

It was a local commentator employed by Huddersfield Town. Very entertaining. You could almost imagine him holding his head in his hands as Andy Edwards scored and shaking his head in disgust "oh dear, oh dear"! :smile:

Yep, that's the one.

I make it that over 56 matches, we've only had 12 where we have failed to score at home.

In 2015/16, there were 9. 2016/17 there were only 2 and 2017/18 just 1 so far.

We lost 8 games at home in 2015/16 and didn't score in any of them.

In 2016/17 we scored in 3 of the 5 games we lost.

In short, since we lost 0-1 at home to Bradford City in April 2016, there's only been 3 matches where we haven't scored at home in 33 starts. One of those, we missed a penalty.

Not sure what that all means, frankly, but it does suggest we don't have a problem scoring goals at home.
