If my memory serves me well the reason the 85-86 side missed out on promotion was due to us selling Tony Kelly to Stoke. Im pretty sure he went after the then deadline day so could not play in any of Stokes remaing few games against teams that were either involved in promotion or relegation.We however had to play 4 sides out of the bottom six and fluffed it.I dont think many at the time could understand why we sold him so near the seasons end.I honestly believe that had he stayed promotion would have been a shoe-in.
