Last season I chose the match at Dean Court in January, 2005, when Paul Heckingbottom equalised with a header from a corner in injury time. However I feel our penultimate away game of last season eclipsed that. Goals from Atdhe Nuhui and Sam Hutchinson meant the score was locked at 2-2 with a few minutes to go but a goal by Leon Best and then Chris Maguire deep into injury time, gave us all the points as we ran out 2-4 winners. However I have to give AFC Bournemouth a special mention here. In the first game of the season they scored the fastest goal when Marc Pugh scored straight from the KO after about 20 seconds. They went on to beat Huddersfield away 4-0 and in their last away match they beat Birmingham 8-0 at St. Andrews! So we have quite a challenge tonight against a Bournemouth side which knocked premiership WBA out of the League Cup only last Tuesday.
Our well known landlord, David Hirst, will be back at the 1867 Lounge on 3 December to host the second Hirsty’s Bar of the season. Once again, Wednesdayite are working with SWFC on this event which will be raising funds for the SWFC Community Programme and the SWFC Academy.

Following another two week break for Internationals we are back on the road with a short trip to Huddesfield, where we hope to repeat last seasons 2-0 victory with goals from Helan and Maghoma.
