Season in Brief

Midfielder Brian O'Neil joined in the summer from Burnley and was one of four ever-present players in a very settled side. In total eleven players played in 35 or more games.

The defence was even more miserly than two seasons previously and once again seventh place was secured which, in turn, meant that once again a place in Europe was assured.
